SUN BATH opening/ LEGION shop/ San Francisco/ 7.7.17

"sun bath is a recollection of nostalgic details from Oakland based artists Ryan Whelan and Liz Hernández. Ryan relives summer through the ovewhleming joys of summer through seemingly ordinary objects: how the sun must feel to the plants, the infinite glow of lemonade on a hot day, and the playful ways that fresh fruits find to lounge in our kitchens. Images that evoke a brilliant and vibrant emotion only felt under the sun. Liz's summer is experienced through the stories told by objects of her childhood: the tasty tropical fruits sprinkled with chili powder, the flowers from her grandmother's garden, and the intricately adorned plates on the kitchen table during her family gatherings."

OMIOMI catered the SUN BATH opening with a space-specific food installation, working with ingredients evocative of summer. Fresh, chromatic and expressive, treats were made in direct response to the artists' sunlit work.
