Instead of using sugar, spice and everything nice to create the perfect girl, Aussie artist Joseph Marr used sugar, sugar and more sugar to create mind-blowingly beautiful erotic sculptures.
Using his creativity and advanced digital technology, Marr has been creating a series of spectacular, life-sized sculptures with the theme of lust, desire and blissful love.
Marr describes explains what it’s like working with sugar on his website:
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. [sic]
The process of creating the sculptures begins by preserving the sugar in polyurethane, a type of polymeric material that does not melt when heated. He then adds flavouring and begins to work with the material based on 3D photographs of the model.
Marr says working with sugar is both wonderful and difficult. Its viscosity is affected by the temperature, so the process requires a precise temperature range for, and Marr needs to work quickly in order to obtain the result he wants.
