365 Days Of Dark Art : 78 / Joseph Marr
Australian artist Joseph Marr uses sugar as his material to create the most remarkable sculptural work.
Working with sugar is wonderful and difficult. Its so colourful and textural, having similarities to paint. But then there is the temperature which is firstly dangerous but also it drops so quickly which influences the viscosity, so I find myself having to work really quickly to get what I need. Its a sensory overload, the smell, the colour, the heat and the honey like movement… its sharp like glass and smooth like Marble and at the same time rough like concrete… unpredictable. – Joseph Marr
