WHERE'S TELLY SAVALAS AND YUL BRYNNER WHEN YOU NEED 'EM?
Salomon Huerta creates art to destroy it. Then he creates it again, and destroys it again. Once more he creates it, and at last it's done. In the Zocalo Public Square program Salomon Huerta: Ego, Destruction, and Facebook, Claremont Graduate University's David Pagel interviews Huerta on his creative process and its meaning. The style of the Tijuana-born, Boyle Heightsraised painter tends toward portraits of bald heads viewed from behind, or close-ups of masked Mexican wrestlers, hiding the subject's identity and inspiring a desire to see what cannot be seen. Huerta paints nondescript suburban houses, too; a place to live but not a place to call home.
