To artist Kent Christensen, sugar in all its many forms is "Mormon heroin."
It's also the basis for his art, which satirizes Mormons' obsession with sweets by using candy, cakes, Jell-O and other sugary treats to recreate personal, religious and cultural symbols.
For example, Christensen has created a canvas depicting Spiral Jetty, Robert Smithson's famous earthwork in the Great Salt Lake, out of salt-water taffy. And he's created a gold-spired LDS temple out of Coca-Cola bottles. (Presumably caffeine-free Coke.)
