Description

Artist Jason Greene was an artist-in-residence for the County Fire Department in the Summer of 2008. After spending many days and nights in Palmdale fire stations and accompanying firefighters on ride-a-longs, Greene created nine oil on wood paintings based on sketches from his residency. Four of his artworks hang in Fire Station 93. The works capture both the extraordinary acts the firefighters accomplish every day as well as the more mundane details of their jobs. Greene intended this juxtaposition to intimately document and commemorate the firefighters' unusual day-to-day lives.
