Simone Rosenbauer
Like Ice in the Sunshine No. 10

2014

$3,000

About

15 x 15 archival pigment print (image size 14 x 14 inches), edition 8 (almost sold out). Signed, titled, dated and editioned on frame label provided. Framing also available at an additional cost. In the latest series by Simone Rosenbauer, entitled Like Ice in the Sunshine, the artist takes the happy simplicity of an ice pop in the sun to capture moments loved and lost, to dwell on ephemeral experiences, and to chart the strength – and frailty – of changing identities. Following an original series done in Sydney, Australia, in 2014, the artist was invited to continue the series via an artist's residency in Los Angeles in 2016. Leaving the natural sun to shape a mix of perennially loved “paddle pops” (as they are called in Australia, where the artist now lives), ice becomes liquid, pooling around the melting whole. Colors merge, others separate, some creep away from their host. Flaking, sloughing, gently seeping - each and every one tells a different tale. The pictures are themselves the visual essence of summer. In each work, a popsicle is centered on a different DayGlo colored background. The pictures are sugary pop confections that seduce with their heightened artificial color. All the components of commercial product photography are in place, but this ideal is literally dissolving before our eyes. With this one simple motif, Rosenbauer deftly evokes both the enticement and the elusiveness of summer. As bold and quintessentially summertime as these elegant images are, they nevertheless capture a melancholy reality: bitter or sweet, all memories eventually melt into the flow of life. Born in Germany in 1977, Rosenbauer received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees there at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund. Thereafter, she was granted the Europe Endeavor Award, from the Australian government, to pursue MFA studies in photography at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. She completed her studies there in 2010, and continues to live, work, and teach in the Sydney area. In 2011, her work was selected for participation in the reGeneration2 project, sponsored by the Musée de l’Elysée (Lausanne, Switzerland) and the Aperture Foundation (New York). Her work continues to be shown in many local and international venues.
