Artists Ponder Food: Tanya Schultz Creates Fantastical Sugar Landscapes

Australian artist Tanya Schultz, otherwise known as Pip & Pop, creates immersive, large scale installations and artworks from a wide range of materials including sugar, glitter, candy, plastic flowers, and other mixed media. Schultz describes her work as, "Often ephemeral, her meticulously constructed and highly detailed works embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure." She is also "fascinated with ideas of paradise and wish-fulfillment described in folk tales, mythologies and cinema."
