Sugar skulls are literally exactly that: skull shaped sugar. Sugar skulls are closely related to Dia de los Muertos, an Aztec ritual which celebrated the lives of those who have deceased. This sugar art dates back to the 17th century, when Mexicans had very little money and plenty of sugar. They created molds of sugar as decorations and used them to adorn the church for the Dia de los Muertos. Each sugar skull represented an individual and their name was inscribed on the forehead of the skull.

Particurarly interesting is the concept of the last year’s series “listen and learn”, where each canvas represents a story, in honour of the ancient culture of storytelling.
The exhibition was at the joshua liner gallery , in their site you can still see the picture gallery accompanied by the stories narrated by Jeremy’s voice.
