Mid-March Update

I haven't been writing much this month and HH has been quiet. I've been happily preoccupied with BAASICS preparation, studio work, and other commitments. Next week, I'll travel to California State University, Long Beach to present a lecture on ethics and contemporary art-making, which should be a lot of fun.

Below, you'll find a recent drawing which was included in "In a Landscape Where Nothing Officially Exists," a group show/event that took place on Saturday, February 25, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. For the exhibition/event, eight artists and one biologist collaborated to create 35 art works representing 35 endangered species living in and around southern California. The works were installed as part of "Un-Space Ground," a site-specific, outdoor visual & performance art event curated and produced by Ed Woodham, founder & director of Art in Odd Places, and Deborah Oliver, a Los Angeles-based curator, as part of ARTspace's "Art in the Public Realm" Symposia at the College Art Association Annual Meeting.
