Stacy Crabill Artist Statement

Can­dy and sweets have dom­i­nat­ed my work for years. The col­ors, shapes, and
pack­ag­ing of can­dy have a remark­able pow­er over our sens­es. I am constantly
explor­ing the true source of our desire for sugar––how much of this crav­ing comes from our bod­ies’ phys­i­cal response, and how much is the result of mas­ter­ful mar­ket­ing? Recent­ly, I have brought a new ele­ment into my work. Vin­tage por­traits, like can­dy, bring with them a sense of nos­tal­gia. My work strives to com­bine all of these seem­ing­ly unre­lat­ed ele­ments to cre­ate a world in which their rela­tion­ships become con­nect­ed in a new and sur­pris­ing­ly believ­able space.
