“Like Morning Dew” Exhibition & Opening Reception at Ice Cream Social
July 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
On View: July 2 – August 13
Opening Reception: July 2 (7-9 pm)
Ice Cream Social is excited to present a small group exhibition, Like Morning Dew. It will feature work from eight artists, including Georgina Arroyo, Theadora Frost, Lacey Hall, Bradlee Hertrick, Fernando Ruíz Lorenzo, Jesse Moy, Anna Victoria Regner, and Lane Sell. A story of de-creation, protection and transformation unfolds via intimate sculptures, dreamy works on paper, eroded salt forms, tabulated drawings, choreographed paintings, and codified installations.
Once upon a time there was a very large rose. It had the color of deep vermilion. A heavy red wine, one that brings dreams and drunkenness at once. Consoling but lethal. It had so many petals, it was, in fact, too large for its own good. Fading and hanging deeper and deeper each day until the blossom fell from its stem before ever wilting. Onto a soft ground and into the darkness of a grave. The moment is brief, the moment is over. Fleetingness is the property of lasting for a very short time. an impermanence that suggests the inevitability of ending or dying. The quality of something that has to pass away, or rather transform like morning dew.
A flower is only seen toward the end of its existence, to be briefly beautiful, and then petals are torn apart by the unforgiving weight of gravity. Petal by petal, de-creating, falling into pieces to decompose and slip away into the soil. Or: we eat it. Because still, we love it. We embed it into ourselves, so as to not lose it.
– Anna Victoria Regner
