When I spoke with Diane Gamboa last night she was telling a story about her experience as an East Los Angeles College alumni. She said she was not one of the best students during her time, but she did spend many hours with the artwork on inventory at the original Vincent Price Museum. She said she would waunder through the stacks of paintings and study the "backs" of the paintings and how they were constructed. She also mentioned that during a current interview for the the alumni show, an interviewer stopped in his tracks when she talked about the "backs" of paintings being one of her influences.
She also wished she had saved a small Henry Moore sculpture that is MIA.
There will be a future article dedicated to the exhibition.
