I’m so *stoked* to announce my solo show, Business Casual is opening this Thursday at AMO Studios. It’s been a really intense exploration of my relationship with Hawaii and all the weird cultural and familial connections I have to our 50th State. I’ve spent the last year gathering stuff on eBay to make these collages, and I’m really looking forward to sharing this (ocean) body of work with you all!
Here’s the details….
Pulled out this photo of my great uncle and behind it fell a hidden ticket from Honolulu Stadium in 1936 and a news clipping of him reporting on his friends stationed in Oahu. Also, his album contained a picture of the USS Arizona afloat in Pearl Harbor. Interestingly enough, the Arizona was also built in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1913.
