Beautiful hyper-real bubble gum drawings by Julia Randal

Julia Randall’s series, Blown, is fascinating. We see a series of precise, close-up drawings of bubble gum with enticing titles that tease your tastebuds as they trigger memories of the last time you tried a piece. The works resemble fleshy bodily tissue as they sink and fold similarly to muscles, skin and organs.

The drawings perfectly capture the rapidly deflating bubble as it slips closer and closer towards its demise. The pocket of air that once kept it afloat is no longer – time is present and fleeting; beauty and the grotesque meet on a common ground to create a new way of observing this familiar object. We see a reflection of our inadequacies as we share a similar process. Beautiful, really.
