Artist's Description

I often take photographs of tree graffiti because of the collective messages that are communicated through symbols by a diverse population. I have found many trees in forests and cities that communicate poignant feelings and thoughts that result in a shared artistic experience. The images and written content are fascinating to view individually and as a collective effort. Each piece is a symbolic shorthand that is viewed in urban and natural settings. This is the first piece I have photographed that is not tree graffiti since murals are also a form of public art. There are many artistic renderings in Los Angeles on the streets, freeways and on buildings. This vast array of images were on a building and I shot it spontaneously not knowing where it would take me. After working with these images I became fascinated. I expermented by adding color, depth and enhancing the icons to the point that the piece transformed into a very different mural. I added confetti streamers and enhanced one image that appears to be a red devil in a lively environment on the right. The large orange circle is open to interpretation by the viewer. My first impression was of a setting sun that also could be a ferris wheel in a devilish amusement park. Have fun with this one. The more you look, the better it gets.
