Berlin-based artist Hannes Bend likes his art to be sweet-literally. A selection of the artist's candy casts, including Albrecht Dürer’s Praying Hands and a bonbon-based crucifix, are set to go on show at New York's Half Gallery (15 January-11 February). "In preparation he is currently casting works, including a deer hunter's trophy and other iconic objects, in the open kitchen at the artisanal candy shop Papabubble in Little Italy," said a gallery spokeswoman who points out that Bend apprenticed with the renowned Berlin-based candymaker Hjalmar Stecher. New paintings, such as Circumference Surprise (2009, pictured), will also go on display.
