Thank you.

 

 

I wish I didn’t have to use words... If only I could fill a thin bag from the Bargain Bazaar with all my feelings. I would run down the party aisle and sweep up every bead and balloon. They are plentiful and accumulate. They shine like a neon plastic rose and never fade. My heart glistens like silicone. My desires mold like rubber to your every bulge and curve. Someday this true romance will tangle into one mass; a plastic island deep in the Pacific where our love will melt under the burning sun.  

 

 

 

I love you.

Gildar Gallery is pleased to present 1-800 Flowers the second solo exhibition by Brooklyn based artist Joey Cocciardi at the gallery. In his ongoing excavation of the Romantic past associated with conquest and natural discovery as seen through the lens of the present, Cocciardi continues to find a side-eyed kind of beauty. In his latest series, the artist updates the nature print for the contemporary moment. Like botanists and illustrators of the Enlightenment plucking foliage in order to stamp impressions in history, Cocciardi forages through dollar stores and neighborhood bodegas collecting specimens. Artificial flowers, condoms, hair brushes, grocery bags, Mardi Gras beads and novelty masks all make the cut. Pressed in rubber and resin, this uniformly plastic flora of the excess-driven urban landscape is reproduced and preserved not for posterity, but in the service of an uneasy material pleasure. Endlessly reproduced for unimpeded consumption, the undying undergrowth of today’s city finds itself memorialized in dazzling hues and classical compositions— an unreasonable attraction etched in synthetic perfection.
