Desire Is A Trap

Joseph Marr is an Australian Artist of English/Maori heritage who lives and works in Berlin. Joseph works with a number of media including  painting, sculpture, video and photography. “My love of classical and contemporary art come together in this series”, says Marr. There is a statement in Hindu Sufism “Desire is a Trap”, which was the first impulse for Marr to work with sugar.

Medium: Sugar, Cola Ahoi Brauser flavor, preserved with several layers of polyurethane

Joseph is represented by Michael Reid Gallery in Australia and Freitag Galerie in Germany.
