My Inner Musician

[Candace’s blog]  I love chocolate!  Chocolate represents the good life to me.  It’s rich and sweet and it fills my senses with it’s magical chocolatey goodness.  So it’s not a surprise that I tend to use chocolate in art as a metaphor for life.

I have a series of Inner Being boxes where the outside of the box represents outer appearance or perspective.  The skeletons inside represent inner truth (not death).  The skeletons are joyful little guys holding things and doing things that have to do with my personal truth.

The polymer clay chocolates are usually decorated with gems and/or, as in this case, things I’ve made, bits of broken jewelry and meaningful pieces of ephemera from my life.  It has lots of symbolism about our musical family.

I made this box for my brother, Mike.  We share a love for music and like to play in his little studio.  We choose songs to learn and perform.  Mike is playing his guitar and I’m singing at the top of my lungs.

It’s called the Mike & Candy Show because that’s what we call our recordings for YouTube.
