Five Borough Multiverse
I moved to LA right before quarantine. Now, years later (ha), I've started noticing pinks, metals, and brighter bits of Southern California colors emerging in my paintings. Seashells and Santa Monica sunsets, giant tropical flowers, and shiny cars of this wide, brimming with art city, are starting to peek through. This piece, made with many supplies from my beloved queer hardware store in SF, Cliff's, is an expression of my love for both cities.
