candy / theme
Delicious, sweet, sugary, brilliantly colored, a treat without any particular nutritional value. Pure pleasure, to be indulged -- often to excess. Sickly, yet hugely appealing, especially to children. Decidedly not for the complex or decadent palate. A simple, even nostalgic joy, evocative of holidays, carnivals, and special occasions, and of a child's distorted sense of scale.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
