Art Description

Drawing: Graphite on Paper.

This drawing was made at the Operating Industries Landfill in Monterey Park, CA. Its on a list of the most polluted places in America and it's surrounded by beautiful suburbs.

About the Series 'Contested Ground'
Paper and graphite are all that is used for these works. Paper is laid down and an embossed rubbing is made of the pavement with 9B graphite. The title for each piece is the location where the work was made. The locations themselves vary widely from the sites of LA riot fires to the eroded parking spaces at a health clinic considered the birthplace of the sex change operation. These drawings give a way to interface with alternate historical narratives that aren’t marked with plaques or monuments.
