Artist duo CHIAOZZA finds Beauty in decay.

“"Studio Lemons" is an ode to the beauty and awe that can be found in ordinary, uncomfortable things. Sometimes we leave fruit on the shelves, and the fruit rots to the point of preserving itself. When we discover the fruit again, it has transformed into a new object, with new potentials and new ways of looking. We like to keep these rotten fruits around. We're not sure why, but we continue to enjoy their presence and so they join the community of studio ephemera that surrounds and inspires us every day.”

-Adam Frezza and Terri Chiao
