LA JOLLA, CA.- A new artwork has joined join the Murals of La Jolla series. The Real Deal, by artists Robert Irwin and Philipp Scholz Rittermann (in collaboration) was recently installed. The mural joins eleven other artworks already installed throughout La Jolla as part of Murals of La Jolla, a project of the La Jolla Community Foundation.
We are honored and excited that these internationally renowned artists will be bringing their work to La Jolla, said Matthew Browar, chair of the Murals of La Jolla Art Advisory Committee and a member of the La Jolla Community Foundation Board of Directors. The Murals project has brought people from around the world to our community and we are proud to be the force behind this public art project.
Robert Irwin and Philipp Scholz Rittermanns collaborative mural, The Real Deal, is an image of Irwins site-specific installation at 6 Burlington Gardens in London photographed by Rittermann. What Robert Irwin created, and what Philipp Scholz Rittermann captured in this image, is the dynamic interplay between the physical object and the surrounding environment, which contains light, reflection, shadow and movement.
Robert Irwin began his career as a painter in the 1950s and was a pioneer of the Light and Space movement in the 1960s. He received the prestigious MacArthur Genius Award in 1984 and in 1992 was commissioned to create the Central Gardens at the J. Paul Getty Center in Los Angeles. Philipp Scholz Rittermanns photography spans opposite ends of our environment, from nocturnal scenes of industry to views of pristine landscape, Both Irwin and Rittermann live and work in San Diego and this mural marks the first time that they have collaborated.
Murals of La Jolla was conceived in 2010 by the La Jolla Community Foundation as a means to enhance the civic character of the community by commissioning public art projects on private property throughout La Jolla. An Art Advisory Committee - composed of the heads of the major visual arts organizations in La Jolla - commissions artists to propose the intervention of an image on specific walls on privately owned buildings. The first two artworks by Roy McMakin and Kim MacConnel were painted directly on their sites. Subsequent artworks have been printed on vinyl and installed on billboard-like structures. Each work is on view for a minimum of two years and has been generously funded by private donations to the La Jolla Community Foundation, a proud affiliate of The San Diego Foundation.
The Murals of La Jolla has established the La Jolla Community Foundation as an important and impactful institution in our community, said Phyllis Pfeiffer, chair of the La Jolla Community Foundation. More than 100 individuals, families, and businesses have made donations to support the murals and to become members of the foundation. We are working together to preserve and enhance La Jolla for future generations.
To date, works by John Baldessari, Catherine Opie, Gajin Fujita, Anya Gallaccio, Robert Ginder, Ann Hamilton, Kim MacConnel, Ryan McGinness, Roy McMakin, Richard Allen Morris, Julian Opie and Fred Tomaselli have been installed throughout La Jolla.
