Will Cotton: The World of Sensual Cotton Candy

Will Cotton: The World of Sensual Cotton Candy

Photography by:  Will Cotton, NYC

Will Cotton’s work speaks strongly to our anxieties about how ineffable, how dematerialized much of life has become.  His paintings are entirely free of technology, and, indeed, of the modern world, but they are products of that world, hyper-realistic and flat, and nostalgic for things that aren’t.  Cotton is at his best when his work is entirely abstract, as in this series of portraits of women surrounded by pastel cotton candy clouds or with elaborate candy headdresses. The emotions of the sensual women in Cotton’s portraits seem torn between celebration and mourning, reality and fantasy.
