"Untitled" (Portrait of Ross in L.A.), 1991
I really enjoyed this piece of art work in the museum. At first i didnt understand the point of the piece bevause I just thought it was a pile of candy but then I read about it and read the message, This piece of art represents Ross Laycock znd how he died of aids. the reason it is candy and we are alowwed to take from the pile is to show how the aids ate away at his body and he lost weight and eventually died, the pile gets restocked each time it ends to represent prepetual life. i really enjoyed this because it shows how you can celebrate someones death in a way other than a funeral or cremation. and although im sure they did have a funeral for him this piece of artwork is representing his life and the meaning of it.Another reason this is appealing to me is because being young candy is deffinitly a big thing in my life, and then putting a message behind the candy you are eating makes you think in a different way and made me appreciate his life wile eating the candy representing him.
