Julia Chiang: Ring Pop Art
Brooklyn based artist Julia Chiang uses a wide variety of materials in her sculpture and installation based work, including nostalgic and sweet ring pops. The colourfoul candy has been used by Chiang in a number of works often employed as pixels spelling out words. The candy jewels atop the rings melts over time under gallery lights and slowly drips down the walls. The melted sugar stains the surfaces it touches.
One of Chiang's largest ring pop installation was presented at this year's Art Basel Miami in the group show 'it ain't fair' at ohwow gallery and can be seen in these photos.
