Cocktails are a delicate and delicious dance between flavors made for mouth bursts. A bartender will wrestle for hours of miscalculated jigger pours, pouring over what ingredient must present itself to your taste buds most. A foreground needs a background. Sometimes it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. Do either ever end? Does anything?
This collaboration is visual social lubricant. A couple of old friends. A bundle of ripe fruit. Bright white shirts. Double bright laser beams. What’s it mean to induce yourself in the visual conversation of a meeting of two minds like these?
Two distinct styles shake hands and take names. Polished Peter and Roll-sleeved Ryan introduce themselves to each other, to you. Chicago visits Brooklyn. Glasses marry face. Paint splatters canvas. Summer Fruit with Summer Suits.
