Artist Eric Rieger, also known as HOTTEA  whose installations have stunned the attendees of visitors to our exhibitions at the Long Beach Museum of Art and the Lancaster Museum of Art and History, grabbed the title of one of 2018’s best art installations by My Modern Met. His installation in the entrance of the Scope Art Fair in Miami this past December was vast and jaw-dropping.

He shared his inspiration for the installation with the publication, “Even though we may take things for granted, once they are gone we wish we would have acted differently. Our sun, rain, wind, plants, animals, people, everything could disappear in seconds and when they do it is our memory of them that will carry on assuming there is something beyond our existence here on earth. What I hope people took away from my installation was not only a color experience they will not forget but also a reminder of how much a singular moment can mean.”
