Brooklyn-based artist Julia Chiang must love the fantastic wearable confection known as the Ring Pop as much as I do. Last seen at the OHWOW Gallery – her Ring Pop Art installation.
Chiang often uses different materials when crafting sculptures but the Ring Pops create an interesting twist. Normally, nothing would make me madder in my childhood days than a piece of melted candy that I was looking forward to enjoying ruined, but over time, under the heat of the gallery lights, the candies begin to melt and streak the walls with brilliant color adding to the already beautiful piece. Pretty amazing right?
