Regarding Here by Claire Bain

Regarding Here by Claire Bain - A mural artist for 15 years, her paintings are based on her site-specific mural called Regarding Here in San Francisco's Mission district. The mural reflects the relationships between indigenous and non-indigenous plant and animal species, using imagery of the surrounding urban built space as a visual foundation. It was painted over existing large graffiti bubble letters, which Ms. Bain simply incorporated into the mural. The theme of the mural is primarily the native anise swallowtail butterfly and its dependence on fennel, an invasive culinary plant from Europe. The materials Ms. Bain used include acrylic mural paint, mica flakes and reflective glass beads.
