Eye-Popping Anatomical Artwork made with Candy and Old Toys

Cristina Burns is a photographer and a mixed media artist who created this eye-popping series of images. She uses photography as a way to capture her surrealistic compositions, meticulously arranged in a myriad of symmetrical geometries.

Her work is characterized by juxtaposition, where opposing elements such as candies, toys, and flowers are fused to anatomical parts and insects, often blurring the extremely thin lines between fantasy and reality, purity and sin, life and death. By creating a childlike and macabre image at the same time, she is revealing to the viewer a sense of sweet decadence.
