Camila Valdez’s Eye Candy Sculptures
Argentinian artist Camila Valdez is also a designer who likes to create large scale character sculptures that blend sexy legs with colorful and decadent deserts such as cupcakes and ice cream. This Buenos Aires artist gives new meaning to the phrase eye candy. The artist re-contextualizes the female figure as an inanimate edible dessert. The pairing of these two subjects in this way objectifies women and suggests that they are a treat to be enjoyed. Valdez makes both large size and table-ware size surreal fantasy sculptures, some of which are reminiscent of works by the very famous Pop artist Mel Ramos, who is especially know for his depiction and sexualization of women as candy bars.
