Salomón Huerta: Untitled (Back of Head on Orange Field), 2002
Untitled (Back of Head on Orange Field) is a brilliant six-color lithograph in shades of tangerine and brick red. As richly colored as a painting, its vibrant palette and simple bold composition, coupled with an absence of character and detail, have the unusual effect of being simultaneously cheerful and enigmatic, not unlike Los Angeles itself.
