Lifelike Sugar Sculptures by Joseph Marr

Inspired by Baroque sculpture and the elegance of Art Nouveau, Sydney born, Berlin-based artist Joseph Marr has created a series of beautiful sculptures made entirely out of sugar. Employing a variety of traditional and digital techniques, Marr aims to create sensual works that bridge the gap between classical and contemporary art. Many of his sculptures include liquids like Cola and Fanta as well as flavorings like apple, lemon, and raspberry. Speaking about the project Marr says, "Any desire at all is the reason why our soul is trapped in the karmic lessons of our Ego. 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."
