Lollipops and Popsicles remind us about a naughty and careless childhood when we craved for sweets. With bright colors that celebrate life and bring smiles, I overstate sweets that lure, charm, tease, disarm and surprise. Through the use of scale, color, and intensity in the forms, the sweets we once took for granted become aesthetically pleasing and seductive in atypical ways.
My colorful, entertaining and impeccably produced sweets activate the cravings people have for the things that give them pleasure and force them to surrender. The sensual nature of the work stimulates the basic human needs that generate passion and desire, forcing the viewer to confront society's striving for fulfillment and happiness through possession of things that end in dependency.
