Maria Magdalena Pons – Sweet Sugar, Salty Tears

BY Sarah Buttenwieser | March 17, 2011

Hand/Eye Magazine, Shelter Island, NY

The Introspective Art Of Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons

Growing up near a now-defunct sugar factory in the town of La Vega, in the province of Matanzas, Cuba, artist Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons has a deeply felt and historically complex relationship to sugar. Even in mind’s eye, rather than envisioning sugar as a crystallized and easily melted confection, the objects Campos-Pons conjures are hard discs of brown sugar, panela from Colombia. She is not focused upon sugar’s syrupiness. She tastes other, decidedly less appealing things.
