Critical Commentary

Drawing from Tupac Shakur’s poetry book “The rose that grew from the concrete” this image displays the resilience of an ancient plant species from Mexico that grew informally, guerilla-style through a crack in the asphalt near an urban community garden in Santa Ana. The image embodies the resilience of the people in this community who have found ways to thrive in places with very little resources such as access to land.
