Painted on location last week with Danny Griego.
This painting is part of the group show “Coded Representations of Power” at the Lyceum Gallery in Horton Plaza, downtown San Diego. Dates: January 2- February 1, 2015. Artists Reception: January 10, 6:30-7:30 PM.
Most of my work is existential rather than expressing a political sentiment, though this work is an exception. I painted it specifically for this exhibition. I wanted to discuss the role that the Interstate Highway System played in “white flight” to the suburbs after the Brown v Board of Education Supreme Court decision (1954) desegregated American schools. The painting is half of a diptych.
