Ellis 3003 is a painting I made in a series of works reflecting on the changes I was experiencing in gentrifying San Francisco. The stability of the creative and self-expressing culture I felt connected to was, and still is, challenged by new wealth and power. At that time, a wave of evictions were happening throughout the city, with a number of my friends loosing their homes and studios.
I made 10 pieces as part of this series and Ellis 3003 is one of two I have kept in my personal collection and now, for a limited time, I am making it available.
24”x18”, oil on cradled wood panel, 2016. This will be packaged and shipped exactly how I ship work to galleries - well padded, sturdy, and with insurance. I'd like to encourage you to save and reuse as much the packaging as you can.
