Facades

 

My focus on Los Angeles street facade imagery has been threefold: unveiling the mystery and drama that exists in our everyday surroundings, exploring the affects these surroundings have on our lives and stimulating awareness of the transient nature of that world. To live in Los Angeles for any length of time is to be connected to it by our collective past experiences. When viewing my drawings of neighborhood facade and signage, people begin to remember their personal history and their ties to this city are strengthened.
