Urban Deities of San Francisco
by Robin Russell
Our immediate urban environments are sacred spaces that are filled with beauty. The ordinary, everyday urban details become sacred with the quality of attention that is given to these details. During her daily walks through San Francisco’s Tenderloin and SoMa neighborhoods, the artist took notice of her environment and began to photograph these beautiful details—burglar bars, pot hole covers, pipes, graffiti. As the artist cut out the images to make photo collages, the manifestation of urban deities began to take shape, in the form of such deities as Tara and Kali. These deities are transformed and reborn into our urban world to enlighten us and to remind us that compassion lives in unexpected places.
