Exhibition: PANTRY by Ryan Flores

  • Grab Bag Studio 2626 East 10th Street Long Beach, CA, 90804 United States (map)

Grab Bag Studio is proud to present, “PANTRY” an installation by artist, Ryan Flores.

Interested in window displays and their relationship to still life, Flores investigates the seduction of consumption. Through installation in the windows at Grab Bag Studio, this idea of consumption is magnified. Employing the luscious language of ceramics, Flores entices the viewer with imitations of fruit.

Through form, Flores likens the art object to consumables, acknowledging the relationship between art and commodity. The objects are a signifier to the act of consumption and therefor, depletion. The vessels act as spaces within place, and amplify the collection of consumable stuffs. 

The window acts as a democratic viewing space, allowing the public access to the work at all times. Whether a passerby greets the installation unexpectedly, or it is view intentionally, the work will remain available. 

The installation will be on view from July 29- August 26
