Las Caras De Las Calles
Fabiola Gamino embodies her art; you see her work, you see Fabiola through it. Feeling like Esperanza in, The House on Mango Street, while walking down the colors of 24th, on an empty bus under the rain, swinging open her front gate to a volume of neighbors, each a parallel of another unit. San Francisco is poetry in itself. Running into her sisters, pieces of a childhood— people she tries to remember and people she tries to forget. The inherited 6th sense that kicks in— seeing bright yellow vests invade our bus line, learning one end of the city to the next without walking more than 5 minutes. Restaurants we casually passed as kids become postcard memories aging with time. This work reflects our street soldiers, artists and activists, first through 7th generations, beings who build the city day by day, all unknowingly building a photograph she happen to come across.
