On Saturday May 19th, LEGroom proudly hosted another magical night of art, food, music and a lot of happy people. It was a party to celebrate the collective art show called “Rhizome” by local artists L. Grenades (Elisa Grenades) and Sarah Largess with guest works by Megan Mosholder. To give you a taste, here’s the artists’ statement:
A GROUP SHOW BY L GRENADES & SARAH LARGESS
The blind line, the aggressive line, and the building of space, is always an adventure with not many directions until the moment arrives. I enjoy being blind in the act, to let the inner psyche take control for a moment… –Sarah Largess
The works of L Grenades & Sarah Cups explore the metaphor of a rhizome, a thick horizontal stem, generally running along or under ground that serves as a reproductive structure.
If separated into pieces, each segment of the rhizome may give rise to a new plant… a new entity borne of the concentric essence of the universe, morphing evermore from form to form, its abstracted legacy fragmented, yet intact, rooted within the network of its offshoots.
The artists invite the viewer to engage in the dialogue depicted in the space, thereby expanding the network of ever sprouting roots.
The pen moves and makes; I only hold the pen.
Capture very perfect moments, imperfectly. — L Grenades
Food was catered by LEGroom’s own Takashi Hasegawa, cooking up a storm of home-style Japanese comfort food. Music also filled the air with guest djs Point Break (of Tar and Feathered) as well as LEGroom resident DJs, spinning all night long.
