Along the walls of two rooms on the first floor, a series of pastels from Marcia Hafif’s (1929–2018) Italian Paintings (1961–1969) peered across at the photographic works the artist developed while studying at UC Irvine (1969–1971) after returning from Rome. The twelve photographs that make up the series U.C.I. Gallery, Irvine, CA 1971 were her degree project, consisting of images taken in the gallery where the project was to be exhibited. Rather than bringing foreign elements into the gallery, each print reproduced a detail of the exhibition space itself. Hafif’s framing of the details belies a nostalgia for the forms she worked with in Rome in a series of drawings and collages that experiment with patterns not seen in her paintings. When she returned to her hometown of Pomona, she discovered that the house her father had built was gone. This prompted her to produce the series Pomona Houses. Crisscrossing the city, Hafif tracked down the remnants of her childhood, creating nostalgic portraits of houses built between 1920 and 1930. The result was an entire native architectural vocabulary, shaped by applying the same formal principles that she uses in her painting practice.
