About the artwork
In "Sweet," Aaron Gan depicts a fairytale landscape complete with princess, castle and carriage in tones of pink. The simple strokes used to depict the textures of road and grass reflect movement and childlike dreams. The princess herself looks downcast, leading one to wonder about the outcome of the depicted story.
