What interests fans of this young LA-based artist with a rising star is not just the imagery he produces but his methodology behind it. For these new “paintings,” Falls gathered vegetation from his current house in Venice (palm fronds, birds of paradise), his childhood home in Vermont (ferns), and the woods around his other residence in […]
