Maria Dominguez

El Views, 2002

Faceted glass in mezzanine windows and platform windscreens

Maria Dominguez created the paintings upon which El Views were based and these were then translated into 16 panels of brilliantly colored faceted glass. In order to capture the area's spirit and energy the artist spoke with dozens of people and took numerous photos of their neighborhood. The final result transforms daily activities into striking images - people arriving home from school or work, tree buds in springtime, and lights from the businesses surrounding the elevated structures. El Views is embedded with the sensibility and humanity of the people and place that were its inspiration.
