Sugahand Editions of 30

Artwork description

This sugar coated body evokes associations with stickiness, luxury and sensuality. The sugar granules on the hand of this woman are reminiscent of diamonds and jewelery. The fact that the sugar has been carefully applied to an image torn from a magazine also draws our attention to how women, sometimes lovingly addressed as 'sugar' are presented in the media.
