Artist Demonstration

The second annual Pattillo Project, Tracy Byatt’s An Impossible Bouquet, is an installation which defies categorisation. At first glance, these works might appear to be artificial flowers, yet they are actually sculpted in an unlikely medium – sugar. Byatt’s work is at once familiar yet enigmatic; occupying a fascinating space between medieval sugar art and the rich tradition of historical still life painting.

Join Tracy Byatt in the project gallery at Sarjeant on the Quay as she works, and demonstrates the techniques she used to create An Impossible Bouquet.
