Curator Leeav Sofer paired artists L Y L E and Estela Garcia together and asked them to have a conversation about the works they each created for For The Love Of L.A. These two artists have never met each other before, and the discussion recorded is their first meeting and the first time they are viewing each others' art pieces. Watch their conversation below.
My contribution to The Music Center’s For The Love Of L.A. was inspired by opposite sides of the spectrum having the ability to work and come together to ultimately create something beautiful. In today’s climate, I've noticed most people passionately combating an issue while neglecting to entertain the idea of turning the tables, ultimately creating a clear divide in the sand.
Incorporating the elements of fire and ice into one make-up look is just a small step toward proving that there’s beauty on both sides, and that is what deserves our focus.
