SFBG: Local Artist of the Week: 'hallucinatory memory'

Local Artist of the Week: 'hallucinatory memory'



TITLE Pigna (60" x 48", oil on canvas)

STORY This is part of a series based on a hallucinatory memory LeDoux imagined during his childhood. He recounted seeing a fountain in the thick Louisiana forests.

BIO LeDoux was born in 1976 in Louisiana. He is currently a BFA candidate at California College of the Arts.
