Title of Work : Beswyming

This work was inspired by the “beswyming” or “trance-like” state we enter when our senses are stimulated by the smells, tastes or visuals we find most appealing. Beswyming captures the essence of vanilla and drops of dark, salty chocolate. When you bite into dark chocolate, you get a split second where your tongue just touches the surface of the substance. You get a faint sweet taste, followed by a crackling, bitter, rich aroma that fills your mouth and then slowly dissolves, with a lingering bitter-sweet after-taste. I aimed to capture the phases of experiencing these smells and tastes with the exuberant movement of the female figures. Furthermore, it is my opinion that women are a lot like chocolate, specifically dark chocolate. We can be sweet, but we are at our best when we’re dark and mysterious!
