I’ve been creating a series of paintings under the themes “identity” and “confectionaries”.
I love the idea that a piece of confectionary can represent us in many ways. You might call yourself a cake, a cupcake, a lollipop, etc. Each piece is made with different ingredients and methods, as are we. However, we share similar ingredients. Which is why a piece of confectionary can mirror humanity and our many sides of life.
This piece is called “Obsessed”, because it represents our state of obsession and addiction. We tend to attach ourselves to something and stick to it. We become obsessed.
