FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SWEET SPIRIT: DYLAN’S CANDY BAR PRESENTS ARTIST PAULA BRETT’S CANDY MANDALAS
New York, NY, November 13, 2013- Tampa artist Paula Brett known for her candy mandalas, or as she terms them “candalas”, has teamed up with Dylan’s Candy Bar to have four of her works featured in the famous retail store.
You couldn’t find a more fitting venue for these delightful candy creations. Brett uses various candies to create beautiful patterns and designs that then get professionally photographed, printed on high quality photo paper, and framed in a 40” by 40” white wood frame. “My candalas are inspired by the sand mandalas created by Tibetan monks—after the sandpainting is finished it’s blown away, symbolizing the impermanence of all things. Instead of sand, these are created out of sugar in candy form. My intention is to arrange everyday sweets in a pattern which becomes sacred, where the delicious turns divine, the enticing now exquisite.” says Brett.
The limited edition candalas can be purchased at Dylan’s Candy Bar for $2150. Her works will be featured in the store from December 2nd through December 31st. Dylan’s is located at 1011 Third Avenue right on the corner of 60th street. Paula will be there herself on December 2nd and 3rd, giving away 100 signed catalogs, taking pictures, discussing her candalas, and even creating some new candalas with customers.
This really is an exciting event and the magnificent candalas are worth seeing in person!
