About the piece:
Based on a paper collage, this piece is inspired by my brief experience of living in Los Angeles and frequently surfing First Point in Malibu. Often times the break would be crowded with territorial types, so I would paddle out at the end of the day and surf into the night when everyone else had gotten out. In the late summer, the moon would rise large and full over the mountains illuminating the waves just enough to see.
