Humming Home In The Way Of Progress, 44in x 45in, mixed media
San Francisco has, at one time or another, been called home by a dynamic list of flora, fauna, creatures, and spirits. The current exodus and influx of the 7x7 territory called San Francisco is, in fact part of a long history of such scenes. For my piece, I pay homage to the Ohlone people, who were displaced long before Google and that tit watching app arrived. Rather than focusing on the injustice and deepening a wedge between us, I heed you to be grateful for you time, your experiences, your relationships, growth, expansion and adventures in this city. Where ever you choose to go, bring light into that place, be mindful, of those who are already there, be humbled by your rival, be open to learning, be patient and kind to the flora and fauna that surround you. Protect what is sacred to you, be vigilant, and adapt.
