Sugar high is that instant boost of energy after consuming huge amount of sugar, that it’s almost euphoric. London based photographer James Ostrer, interpreted this worldwide addiction to sweets by covering his human subjects with it.
Wotsit All About shows comparisons between the paganism of early tribes and modern man’s sugar worship in a comical, almost freaky way.
It is a commentary of how people’s self-destructive behavior is causing the increase in the number of obese and overweight individuals every year. The artist is also a self-confessed sugar addict. I think all of us are. We are all aware of the potential damage we bring to our health by ingesting too much sweets, yet we do it anyway. It makes us all wonder wotsit all about.
About the artist:
James Ostrer studied at Chelsea College of art before shifting to Bristol University to study Business. He worked at English National Ballet as a set painter for seven years until he had a serious injury that prompted him to focus on his true passion.
“Most of his work often tests the limits of the body politics in the ever evolving analysis of the western body, sexuality, and society.” –PR
