Umbrella

Black umbrella

"Precious Product", Pacific Center, SF

December 1988

This piece ”Umbrella” was my reaction to the exhibition titled “Precious Product” which took placed in rainy season of December. This is a time of the year in San Francisco when umbrella becomes precious to anyone.

 

In the show, one ordinary umbrella was on display hanging on the bar at 4 story height ceiling for sale.

 

At the opening night, artist Tony Labat purchased it for asking price of $4.99.  Red dot was placed on the price list as a evidence of purchase and mine was the only piece sold during the show.
