SMASH

Mandad’s shattered tempered glass work is part of the on going “Smash Project”. In 1983 he coined the medium “Smash” and referred to it as  “Street Diamonds”.

Smash Jesus        [ shattered tempered glass, silicone, wood, resin ]                                      Profoundly ambiguous, enigmatic and visually stunning, “Smash Jesus” resonates with meaning. But all significance is provided by the viewer. As with many pieces in Mandad’s “Smash” series, the juxtaposition of the materials, (shattered glass, silicone) with the iconography, creates a provocative tension.                                                                         Available for viewing at Melissa Morgan Fine Art,  73040 El Paseo, Palm Desert, Ca.        760 341 1056
