Sugar examines contemporary ideals of success and ‘beauty’, referencing pop classics like the Little Mermaid as contemporary interpretations of the classically beautiful icon maiden depicted in Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus.

The work likens the instability, un-sustainability and eventual unfulfilling nature of these sterile and artificial images or ‘dreams’, to that of the sugar coated synthetic colours and flavours infected reality of the popular breakfast cereal Fruitloops.
