Artificial Sucrose Sushi
From the Artist
“They wanted to be real sushi but were trapped in artificial colors and sugar.”
About the Artwork
Artificial Sucrose Sushi by Denise Stewart-Sanabria was originally created by the artist using oil on linen. Each Archival Pigment Print in this limited edition is a reproduction of the still life, featuring every skillfully balanced color, the translucence of the candy, and the texture of the linen.
In Artificial Sucrose Sushi, Denise Stewart-Sanabria crafts a tasty arrangement of gummy sharks, gathering as if for a meeting with sugary sushi. They seemingly twist their tails, mimicking the koi pond wallpaper on which they sit. The high contrast light creates a dramatic scene for the candy fish.
About the Process
Haystack collaborates with traditional printmakers and digital printers to ensure each artist’s print reflects the most important aspects of their studio practice. Artificial Sucrose Sushi was printed by G.Moulin Limited Editions. Each Archival Pigment Print was digitally printed with a lab-calibrated inkjet printer using pigment-based inks (this process is also known as Giclée printing). The 100% cotton paper has a smooth texture and the purest natural white tone available, allowing for every visual subtlety and tonal transition in the artwork to be reproduced at the highest quality.
