Arthur Secunda lived in Los Angeles off and on. He was there in the 1960s during the Watts Riots, and was friends with Noah Purifoy. The two walked the city collecting objects left from the destruction of the violence to construct into art. Some of Secunda's work during this time is part of the permanent collection at the LACMA. It is mind-bending to know the diversity of Secunda's work, from oil to collage to woodcutting to found object art and beyond.
