I am an Artist from Sydney Australia, living and working in Berlin since 2007. This book is about the last 15 years of my work including an in depth look into the 9 meter long 300 kg sugar sculpture I made for the Techno Club Berghain. This sculpture is a love story starting in lust and ending in bliss of togetherness.
I make sugar sculptures of people. Why sugar? Think of your own life and how sticky the situations get when you go towards what attracts you. I wanted to make an as close to life copy of a human being in sugar so I used 3d scanning and printing to make the moulds for the sugar to pour into.
Along with the sugar works are also my latest portrait series entitled “I am therefore I think” which is a collaborative series exploring the notion of a deeper self through interviews with many different kinds of people. I sat together with Actors: Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones), Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), Spanish Artist: Okuda San Miguel and Boris a Berghain resident Dj among others. Each portrait comes with in depth interview about the most transformative times in each persons life. Ive tried to translate these experiences into portrait sculptures and paintings.
