"Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers work collaboratively to produce objects that are sensually appealing and refer to advertising, design, and glossy consumer products.

"A giant ice cream bar juxtaposed against a wooden stick licked clean of its frozen goodness will whet the appetites of collectors at this year’s Art Southampton. The glossy white sculpture, Now You See It..., by the duo of Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers and exhibited by Miami Beach’s Dean Project, nods to the age of Snapchat and the ephemerality of an art fair."
