The pointed spyres of white gladiolas rival for dominance in their finger pointing. The cluster perched in the public market hints at tradition and aesthetics and a delight in natural patterns.
The rich red of radishes bundle in the market, each oversized and root flavored sharp. The pattern of the bundles dances with a multiplier that Sister Carrita highlighted in the hippie sixties. The natural pattern making each individual radish larger.
The flat leaved succulent edges the ocean sand seeking sun and rain. Waiting with the protection of every poking prickle and the expanse of sand promising waves. Dropping into Escondido it would be easy to assume that this is only a surfers town. Yet on every surface the perspective of the artist points to patterns that pit the eye-scape with an integration of past and present. Sun and surf!
