From the series and solo exhibition, Sleepwalking in Los Angeles
Tropico de Nopal Gallery
"Last Friday, May 1st, at Tropico de Nopal in Echo Park, I witnessed a pictorial presentation of silent but dead-on storytelling of urban LA as well as its ghost-like
inhabitants. Poli Marichal, in her current one-woman show,
Sleepwalking in Los Angeles, has created a stunningly impressive body of work that examines, celebrates, and mythologizes everyday scenes of our weathered, concrete, municipal epicenter. Her urban myth's protagonist? - the homeless, displaced, and socially discarded population of LA's streets."
