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.
