> Featuring two-dimensional drawings and paintings as well as three-dimensional sculptures from found items, this exhibition of mixed-media work by Loren Schwerd and Marco Zamora looks to collections of memory and nostalgia. Schwerd creates commemorative objects made from human hair extensions found outside the St. Claude Beauty Supply in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The portraits draw on the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century tradition of hair work, in which family members or artisans would fashion the hair of the deceased into intricate jewelry and other objects as symbols of death and rebirth. Zamora uses paint and ink to create articulated imagery that focuses on the inhabitants of the urban landscape. Having designed for Vans and worked in apparel design, he is influenced by everyday life, his culture, color, L.A., and skateboarding. Both artists bring unique perspectives to issues of home and memory, and the way the material world becomes integrated into identity
