Welcoming committee, Imperial Beach, California, 2014

A gateway featuring four surfboard shaped arches, believed to be the largest colored acrylic moldings ever cast, dominates the entrance to Imperial Beach’s iconic pier. I abstracted the 20-foot high monument, known as “Surfhenge,” by zooming in on the welcoming committee at the moment -- a sole pigeon, perched atop aluminum letters that spell out the name of the city itself. The bird brings the abstracted image to life, while the brilliant colors draw the eye into the scene.
