This piece was made in response to the 1992 uprising in Los Angeles. It was part of a group show put together by Rick Garzon at the Residency Gallery in Inglewood.
The window was found in that area, the photographs are a mix of images of the corner of Florence and Normandie , some from the rebellion in 1992 and some from the intersection as it appears today. The fabrics seeping out of the cracks in the wood frame are metaphors for the different cultures that were affected. Not seen in these photos is an old car tire with a fresh plot of grass growing from it’s center. This symbolizes that there is some hope growing out of the ground, out of that moment in time. These pictures are from a group show at SOLA gallery in Inglewood .
