Article By Ryan Waddoups

Debuting alongside an exhibition of his plasterglass furnishings, Patrick Naggar adorns the facade of RALPH PUCCI Los Angeles with a cosmic four-piece mural that embodies space-time travel in simple shapes and forms.

Here, we ask an artist to frame the essential details behind one of their latest works.

Title of work:


Where to see it:

Ralph Pucci (1025 N McCadden Pl, Los Angeles) until mid-2022.

Three words to describe it:

Colorful, space-time, cosmos.

What was on your mind at the time:

The cosmos as an eternal questioning.

An interesting feature that’s not immediately noticeable:

The small “segments of time” at the bottom of the walls reflecting the rhythm of the window mullions above.

How it reflects your practice as a whole:

A poetic approach to design through navigation between past and future.

One song that captures its essence:

“Offering” in “Passages” composed by Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar.
