.Everyday Objects Take on Odd Significance in Recuerdos

music in the park san jose

Pop art and pop culture made early, deep impressions on the mind of Bay Area artist Don Fritz. In the artist’s ceramics, prints, paintings and mixed media, bright, childlike pop images contrast against strange backdrops displaying state power and culturally enforced gender identities. In Triton’s exhibit Recuerdos, everyday objects take on odd significance, layered in hidden meanings and interpretations, while strange objects take on the cast of the everyday. Take, for example, Atomic Tank, a ceramic battle tank rendered kawaii by its stubby cannon, Japanese graffiti and egg-like shape. Memory has a way of twisting things in Recuerdos.


Show opens Sat, 11am, Free

Triton Museum, Santa Clara
