I-5 At Dusk, San Diego Freeway Painting

Dusk, I-5

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.
