Little stacks of fun. Or are they small comments about our culure...?

Call, text or email me for inquiry.

Totem: PEZ

Historically these little candies were mint flavored and named for the German word mint ‘pfefferminz’, hence their name, PEZ.  Now a still popular treat that comes with a playful dispenser, his work shows the PEZ pieces without the dispenser and stacked playfully, as such could be titled a PEZ nude.

Totem: Allsorts I

This totem is composed of bright licorice candies. Allsorts are enchanting shapes and colors, including some enticing gelatin nonpareils covered pieces. The first try can be a taste disaster for those who do not adore licorice but are tempted by the all sorts' delightful appearance.

Totem: Allsorts II

This enticing candy stacks is a delightful temptation. As a culture we are generally attracted to these charming colors and interesting shapes, but once the candy is experienced as a food there is often a mismatch between its attractiveness and its taste. This work explores the occurrence of the incongruity of appearance and experience.

Totem: Neccos

A childhood favorite remembered. Neccos are sweet, nostalgic colorful disc shaped candy. Attractive shape and colors attract us but does the flavor and texture match with promise of the appearance?
