1AM First Friday Event with Eddie Colla

1AM Gallery is happy to present our First Friday event with Eddie Colla, this Friday, December 2, 2017. Come by our booth to get to know Eddie, and pick up one of his limited edition prints. The prints will be released online that morning at 10AM PST, including 10 hand-embellished prints within the edition of 50. Eddie’s style in these pieces draws on the experience of remembering, where the past is documented or erased by our minds, both at will and at random. Experiences are not taken to be individual entities, but rather a collective that leave a unique imprint on our minds.

Here’s a peak at Longest Winter, as well as a statement from Eddie himself:

The-longest-Winter-web

“I created this piece for the exhibition “Nothing Lasts Forever” in August 2015.
The phrase, nothing lasts forever referred literally to the work I had spent the prior year putting up illegally in my travels. More importantly it referred to my life being in a state of flux. I use text in these pieces to both recount and erase. The process of making these pieces is the process of remembering and cataloging my state of mind over a period of time.

The remaining text is not a clear legible narrative, but rather a intersecting cacophony of experiences. To me the clarity of specificity of those experiences is secondary to the collective stain they leave. The mark of things that once were and no longer are. The Longest Winter refers to this period. It was dense and almost impossible to recollect, moving past me at a speed where I was often not there. Either looking ahead or looking back, I missed much of it. Like sleeping on a train and waking with no memory of the journey, only the realization that you have arrived somewhere very different then where you started.

In the end it is usually one person, one chance experience that is the fulcrum. This was mine” – Eddie Colla
