We thank everyone who came out for the opening of Tyler Eash's debut show Waterfall, waterfall at Better this 18th of December. The art, music, company, and food were all uniquely beautiful, and we could not have asked for a better evening.
I am without weight. An attempt at flight, jump off a cliff and become mist, to be missed. Waterfall, waterfall.
Waterfall, waterfall is not a performance.
Tyler Eash attempts to imbue inanimate objects with a soul. Waterfall, waterfall questions whether it’s possible to document the presence of the human body with objects of familiarity. It’s an idealistic realm in which absence becomes the subject. Formalist art conventions transform familiar objects into voids. By exploiting the inherent reverence of the art realm, Eash blurs the conceptual content of a work with the idea of a soul. Elements of the body are abstracted into objects, further transposing identity between the animate and inanimate and creating visual depictions of aging and sensuality. Waterfall, waterfall attempts to elevate the mundane into a higher power.
For this show, Better and Eash came together to create two new works: The Odor of Sanctity, and Osmogenesis. Both are perverse phenomenological forays into papal lore and...odor.
The show will be up through February and is as much Eash's solo debut, as it is our own. Waterfall, waterfall is the first show in the Better; for Living gallery. Future shows will be bimonthly and feature both independent works of the featured artists, alongside collaborations between the artist and us at Better.
