[Intersections] Artist Ramiro Gomez: Painting LA’s ‘invisible’ workers (+ Video)

Artist Ramiro Gomez creates paintings of L.A.’s gardeners and janitors, nannies and housekeepers — the fleet of workers who keep some of the city’s most upscale households running smoothly. Many live in low-income neighborhoods like South L.A. and make daily commutes to the far-flung affluent neighborhoods of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Without showing even the expressions on their faces, Gomez’s art highlights their painstaking efforts as well as their quiet dignity.

You can view some of Gomez’s latest works, including magazine-based paintings and David Hockney-inspired canvases, at the Charlie James Gallery in Chinatown through Saturday, March 8.
