Here is Pacifica VI, enclosed by a rectangular double frame in black and grey. Pacifica was an 80 foot sculpture made of plaster by Ralph Stackpole that stood at San Francisco's last world's fair- 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 is my sixth painting relating to Pacifica. Her face features an illuminated dreamy night-time look.
