 Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) exhibition cycle 2013-2015 explores how stories within the community shape the collective consciousness in San Pedro and South Bay area. For 2014, Los Angeles based artist Fausto Fernandez was selected to work on the next iteration of the exhibition cycle.

The collaboration marks the beginning of a year-long partnership with the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, the Pile Drivers, Bridge, Dock and Wharf Builders Local Union 2375 whereby AGCC will explore the stories of members and their families, the history of the labor movement in San Pedro and how this impacts the community at large. These photos show the research and installation process.

An Opening Reception for several new shows in the Galleries will be held on February 9, 2014 from 2:00pm-4:00pm. Chamber Concert at 4:15pm.

Love is what you make it out to be 2013 72 x 72 Mixed Media Collage on Canvas
Available at Gebert Contemporary in Scottsdale


 “Love is what you make it out to be” is the second of a series of paintings where the title refers to a song by a musician I admire. Aubrey Debauchery is a singer and songwriter who lives in Chico California. I was going to title the painting after one of her songs sometimes inspired by ex-boyfriends, crushes, outlaw country, and lots of whiskey. I asked if she would do me the honor of naming this painting and she wrote a song with a title inspired by the painting posted here. If my paintings could sing I would like them to sing like Aubrey. Visit her website and look up her youtube videos http://www.aubreydebauchery.com/





All Flowers In Time Bend Towards The Sun. 2013 72 x 72in. Mixed media collage on canvas

"All Flowers In Time Bend Towards The Sun"  I titled this after a beautiful unreleased song by Jeff Buckley and Elizabeth Fraser. Flower-arranging as an art form was brought to Japan by Buddhist monks, who learned it while in China. In ancient China, flower-arranging developed into a highly refined art form, based on the principle that life is sacred, including the life of plants, therefore cut flowers were used sparingly in carefully planned arrangements. Flowers were a traditional ritual offering among Buddhists, however, and remain so. (Wikipedia)
