Like many of its inhabitants, the beauty of Los Angeles is often transient. It’s in the sunsets, the weather, the shadows on the sidewalk. Peeking through the shallow façade of Los Angeles is an interesting history and a rich natural environment. 'Sweets to the Sweet' is an expression of hazy, sundrenched memories of LA through colour, pattern, and imperfection, where what is good and what is bad is hard to distinguish and intentions are difficult to see. 'Sweets to the Sweet' uses text, pattern, and colour to explore the juncture between the motivation to create order from memory and the inevitable inability to do so.
