Description
The foreground is a palm tree whose leaves have been partially cut out to show different designs and patterns: asian characters, moiré patterns, flowers, maps... The background is a view of the business district in downtwon Los Angeles with City Hall and hotel buildings. The main colors are fluorescent green, pink, purple, and orange.
"This print represents the city of L.A. which I see everyday, during the riots the city smoked and burned, I have been doing a series of ¡Adios Hollywood! for over a year and always knew the city was going to burn but never understood why or how. It was only appropriate to make a print that captured the city burning: the palm tree [is] such a symbol of L.A. and my faithful companions from my window on Echo Park." G. Westcott
