About The Artwork

In the Distance, 2022, Mixed media

This image was shot at the Home of Peace Memorial Park and Mortuary which is the successor to the first Jewish cemetery in Los Angeles: the Hebrew Benevolent Society. Established in 1855, near the site of the future Dodger Stadium, it was moved to its current location in 1902 in East LA in 1902. I have layered images from the cemetery with suggestions of urban Downtown LA and the site of Dodgers Stadium, combining paintings of mark-making and digital media to generate a poetic language where systems are linked to form a new syntax, connecting the ancient and the new.
