Us as a Measure of Openness

Artist(s):

Project Description

Rendered with bold, flat colors on a stark backdrop, Geoff McFetridge’s striking artworks depict communities of people interacting with large abstract shapes. From mothers and children to gardeners and lawyers, the figures are unique and expressive. The geometric forms allude to architecture and city infrastructure, which both support and are supported by the people.

Artist Statement

“I am trying to capture how this city constantly surprises me with its diversity and confounding polarities of experience. Los Angeles is urban in a way that can accurately be described as abstract.”
