Veering from his usual overwhelming color, Marquez invites a different take on his favorite word. ‘Pacific’ often conjures visions of water, which feels appropriate as ‘Love’ seems to be splashed in a blue pool. The splash of pink neon and blue splatter are starkly contrast to the duller concrete color. Perhaps Marquez is breaking through the surface of emptiness in attempt to fill that space with bright and bold love, which mirrors the function of the piece itself to any viewer.
