Besos y Balas
There is a great exhibit at Arte Americas in downtown Fresno… Detailed photos of farm workers (and let’s face it, this is an intimate part of the food we eat) and some brilliant man who paints on big, beautiful resin tortillas. The artist, Bravo, incorporates the blackened bits, jagged edges, and smooth white planes of this surface to create bright and beautiful works of art. Go see it. It’s ironic, moving, and might make you want to get a bite to eat afterwards.
