PACIFICASize: 30" x 24"
Medium: Oil on canvas
Pacifica was an 80 footer made of plaster and built by Ralph Stackpole, and she stood at the Golden Gate International Exposition of 1939-40 at Treasure Island. Pacifica was the theme statue for the exposition, representing world peace, neighborliness, and the power of a unified Pacific coast. She was monumental, a peaceful, almost prayer-like female figure, and as if welcoming guests at the fair. She was demolished after the fair ended in 1940. She was and continues to be an iconic figure and it is hoped one day to have her re-built and back at the Island. This time I've painted her face in a more dream-like night time look.
"PACIFICA", has been awarded in ArtSlant's 1st monthly 2015 Showcase competition in the Category of Painting II.
