ABOUT THE SHOW // Third dream’s the charm! Splatterpool artspace is pleased to present I DREAM OF A THREESOME (with a Forget-me-not, Pansy, and a Bleeding Heart), a group exhibition of trios curated by J. Morrison.
The third in J. Morrison’s Spring Dream series, the show will present unique “threesomes” of different artists’ works hung together in a dreamlike fantasy sequence. Each artist was asked for 3 artworks that will be divided and mixed up through the exhibition.
Similar to the act of picking flowers for a bouquet, the sexuality of a threesome is equated here with the language of a “nosegay”— a small bouquet exploring the floral language of love. The Forget-me-not, Pansy, and a Bleeding Heart can be seen as metaphors for the three works curated from each artist, while forming new statements and identities when placed in unique combinations.
Playful, colorful, joyous, and celebratory, the exhibition will present a wide range of media including paintings, sculpture, photographs, and drawings.
*This is J. Morrison’s 2nd curatorial show with Splatterpool, and a continuation from last year’s My Spring Fling Turned Into My Summer Dream (an exhibition of pairs). Following last year’s success, Morrison’s show will again conclude the artspace’s season.
