Britt Ehringer: Tacos@Midnight: The So-Cal Experience
Tacos@Midnight includes paintings, drawings and photographs, often inhabiting and generating the same compositions. His subject matter is legible from a mile away — it’s pure Southern California. Bathing suits, sunglasses, skateboards, beers, palm trees, surfboards, comic book Pop, the ocean. But at more intimate proximity another set of subjects rise to the surface — a problematic nostalgia, an enthusiastic kitsch, and a kind of bitter whimsy that permeate the images in content and style.
