High and Dry, Smoke and Fog is inspired by cars… the joy, the freedom, the mechanics, the dependence, the status symbol, the technology, the social responsibility, the sex appeal, the pollution, the speed, the danger, the commute, the traffic, the exhilarating road trip, the urban sprawl and the transportation conundrum.  The artwork in this exhibition addresses the paradox of these topics; some works evoke it directly, some abstrusely. The work also illustrates the general human desire for movement and exploration, and how mankind’s pioneering, adventurous spirit has come to manifest itself today in our motor transportation.  Particularly in Los Angeles – the American metropolis supreme – whose complicated relationship with cars, traffic and transportation is both fascinating and poignant.  L.A. is the only major city that was entirely shaped by the automobile.  In 1964, Marshall McLuhan said, “The car has become an article of dress without which we feel uncertain, unclad, and incomplete.” Currently, Los Angeles County is in the top ten dirtiest counties in the U.S. for air pollution.
