‘Welcome to El Segundo’ is a piece that is a welcome and a play on traditional tourism photos. The work is in two parts. One is a photograph of the sunset over the Pacific Ocean hand-collaged on an acrylic primed finished wood panel and protected via UV-coated museum plexiglass. Second is a portion of the original sign, with legs extended slightly. The work is meant to be a bright welcoming new idea of El Segundo as a gateway to the beauty of the environment, with a hint to the past in the remaining historical signage and the worn application of the photography to the wood panel.
