The two take-away posters are part of the project, Untitled (la revolución es la solución!), which was commissioned by Artpace San Antonio in 2017, in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Los Angeles Uprising in 1992.

The images co-opt the work of photojournalists taken during the uprising and employ a stratagem of digital removal/blurring of the human body from the original photos prior to re-rendering figureless drawings in graphite, and then adopting various methods of display such as framed drawings, enlarged prints of the drawings as wall installation, photo light box and tapestry.
