Betsy Enzensberger











We are very excited to feature LA based Betsy Enzenberger! 

Betsy Enzenberger has become quite well known for her realistic, larger-than-life sculptures of dripping, frozen treats and other sweet-toothed delights. Resin looks like candy. It looks delicious and sweet. The shiny exterior has a wet, melting quality. Her Melting series relies on the child-like lure of sweet, sticky lollipops and popsicles to artificially instill intense desire. The colorful confections practically beg to be rescued and consumed.

I (Lisa) have tried to work with resin. I can't. It has turned out terrible every time. Enzenberger captures her subjects wonderfully, I am not sure how she does it. Her love of the medium is apparent, stating "Resin-I love it. It's beautiful, sexy, mysterious. It's also toxic, messy, and annoyingly exhausting to create. There's just something about it I can't resist. I dream about it. I want to touch it. I want to eat it."
