The Cherry on Top is not about keeping everything in moderation. Both artists naturally embrace this concept in their practices with excess uses of glitter, fluorescents, sequins and narratives in their paintings. Both challenge traditional gender and traditional painting roles in their own way. This show was mutually curated by the artists and the work was specifically meant to compliment each other. Although Chelsea’s abstractions and Dakota’s figurative narratives are vastly different, the duo manages to challenge that and embrace it at the same time. They have collaborated before on paintings, shows, and other curations; the way Chelsea and Dakota work together is also an important part of their unique, social painting practice.
