Fervid Los Angeles


Fervid Los Angeles (triptych), 28" x 36", oil on panel, 2011.

An abstract representation of living in contemporary Los Angeles, this work conjured up mixed feelings of beauty, fear, passion, apathy, excitement, frustration, warmth, loneliness, joy, and sadness. But taken as a whole, Los Angeles is mostly a fervid place, regardless of which side of the coin we examine, intense in spirit. Among the intensity there are lulls, and in between there are subtleties which make every experience unique.
