Notes

I made this for the Anarchy art show at Post Gallery in Los Angeles curated by Annie Buckley, http://www.anniebuckley.com/index.html
.
Here is an article she wrote about the show for the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/annie-buckley/asking-fish-t...

The scenery depicted is inspired by Los Angeles streets lined and decorated with palm trees and the heavy sound of helicopters overhead. Reminding me of the pervasive watchful eye of authority. Creating a textile full of holes makes the idea of what looks weak and fragile may hide strength. It’s a humble form of communication, decorative and fanciful but steeped in a history of fortitude and survival.
