TEMPUS PROJECTS PRESENTS WHERE THE GRASS IS GREEN AND THE GIRLS ARE PRETTY
Group Exhibition Features New Work from Photography Collective

Tampa, FL – Where the Grass is Green and the Girls are Pretty is a group exhibition featuring new work from artists of the photography collective known as Fountain of Pythons. Hosted by Tempus Projects and curated by Danny Olda, the exhibition is slated to open Saturday, August 29.

Artists Wendy Babcox, Jeremy Chandler, Marcus DeSieno, Becky Flanders, Forrest MacDonald, Noelle Mason, Kym O’Donnell, Chris Otten and Selina Roman offer a diverse collection of work for their latest exhibition as a collective. Where the Grass is Green… playfully draws its name from lyrics of the Guns N’ Roses song, “Paradise City,” in which an idealized but ambiguous home is longed for. Similarly, for this exhibition the artists explore a sense of place, not only as a simple location, but as a psychological setting where life is performed and art is created.

Through widely varying techniques, aesthetics and sensibilities, the artists examine a range of personal geographies. For example, artist Noelle Mason sculpts while sky diving as Marcus DeSieno pores over global security camera footage for stark or pristine landscapes. The exhibition addresses a fascinating spectrum of ideas related to identity, place and art making. On the whole, Where the Grass is Green and the Girls are Pretty reflects the disparate and complex relationships we have with our surroundings and our surrounding with us.
