Artist Joseph Marr has created this series of preserved sugar sculptures called Laura, each one flavored with cherry, apple, Fanta, or licorice.
"Any desire at all is the reason why our soul is trapped in the karmic lessons of our Ego. Sexual desire is the most accessible concept for people in general to understand 'desire.' Candy is a wonderful medium to show two things...how we are trapped in the sticky situation and how attractive the tasty desire really is."
After developing his skills with painting and video, Marr began exploring unusual mediums like food. Many of his works include liquids like cola as well as flavorings like apple, lemon, and raspberry. The series here includes four versions of Laura, each one flavored with cherry, apple, Fanta, or licorice.
