Give Me Sugar…Art

by Sherry Riter in Art  

Is it possible to think of sugar as art?

Sugar is the crystalline substance that tastes ever so sweet and gives me quite the high when consumed in great amounts. Scientifically, sugar consists of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen which looks something like this…

However, we don’t usually think of sugar in molecules. I also don’t think of sugar the same way as Brendan Jamison who is an artist that creates sculptures using sugar cubes.

Swee-e-e-et!

I perused his website and discovered that he was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1979. He obtained a BA Honours degree in Fine and Applied Arts in 2002. Shortly thereafter, in 2004, he obtained a Master of Fine Art. His artwork is now world renowned and growing in popularity.

I bet you’ll never look at that little white sugar cube the same again.
