A giant red iconic Life Saver candy floats as a single female figure plunges sideways into a torrent of splashes. Her eyes gaze up toward the viewer, unconcerned with cherry-flavored sugary treat. Her hands are clasped, arms outstretched, and toes pointed. Life Savers have been around more than a century and are almost as universally recognized as the female figure. It was in 1935 that cherry was introduced as part of the five-flavor pack. I love working with water and other liquids. The ungovernable nature of liquid provides a balance between order and chaos; I can predict the general nature of the image, but the exact details are left to chance.
