    Charlotte Hyzy's carved wood sculptures, Dessert Babes, playfully depict voluptuous or "plus-size" nudes as delicious confections. Hyzy's works are an attractive melding of idealized sugary sweets and the sensuous physiques that are traditionally associated with indulging in them. The sculptures serve as an examination of societal perceptions of the female body and its preoccupation with an “ideal” weight and form. < BACK | NEXT >
