Late Afternoon Light and the Strangeness of Southern California
Late Afternoon Light and the Strangeness of Southern California
From the odder places at the beach, these are from Wednesday, June 8, 2005, almost all after 5:30 in the afternoon, when the light starts to get long. Venice Beach and inland from Venice Beach. It can be strange out here.

Jonathon Borofsky's
Jonathon Borofsky's "Ballerina Clown" (1989) - the Renaissance Building at Rose and Main 
Jonathan Borofsky grew up in Boston and was educated at Carnegie-Mellon, Yale, and the Ecole de Fountainbleau in France. Borofsky's work has been exhibited at galleries and museums around the world. In 1984, a retrospective of his work toured major museums throughout the country. Borofsky's sculptures can be found in many locations in Los Angeles from "Molecule Men" which holds a prominent location in front of the Roybal Federal Building, to the "Ballerina Clown" on Main Street in Venice, to the large activated "Hammering Man" in the plaza of the California Mart at Spring and Olympic Streets. These sculptures, as is true of most of Borofsky's other works, are recognizable forms - humans, clowns, animals - used in a playful manner and unusual context, provoking diverse interpretation.
