Expansion: the act of becoming larger, more extensive, Synonyms: growth, enlargement, extension, development, proliferation, multiplication

 

These are the daily topics that we talk about and that we see, living in Los Angeles. We are exposed to large development activity that is going on a daily basis.  The dichotomy between corporate growth and individual poverty is obvious. The change to come is unknown, positive and negative. We visualize this topic through the depiction of people and places, through painting and photography. The individual has a face, the group of people representing the corporate entities do not. The Buildings are covered and impose questions about their appearance and purpose.
