The English seaside resort was a place that formed happy childhood and family memories. But now, a returning trip to such places provokes feelings of sadness and a sense of loss as in reality the seaside is no longer what it was. As memories fade and become faint overtime, a glimpse into our past becomes an idealised dream of something that was. Candy Floss explores these ideas through the washed-out colours which represent the fading and lack of ability to recall such memories. Now overshadowed by the appeal of the holiday abroad, the sad decline of the seaside coincides with the loss of childhood innocence. The place itself, now faded and become a novelty will soon be but a memory.
