ABOUT THIS SERIES:
"Secluded & Convenient" is a visual story about past, present and future in a scarce undeveloped area in Carlsbad, North County San Diego. The inspiration comes from hidden gems in plain sight. Artist Kate Joiner draws upon an area physically close to her, as she is mesmerized by the objects and structures once cherished. Her work depicts a wide range of snapshots, tucked away for safety, including an abandoned equestrian farm, a vacant lot owned by Walmart, migrant workers who toil seven days a week, and the threat of California fires in protected brush. What some see as discarded, she imagines a narrative that came from the remnants and ponders what will become of the land's future development.
