One of the most common questions asked of artists is what inspires our work. To address this head on I have invited three Hawai‘i-based artists to create new projects that combine their own artworks with the actual sources of their inspiration.
Ka-Ning Fong has been making urban landscape paintings across the globe for over thirty years. This exhibition focuses on those he made within the past ten years in Honolulu’s Chinatown, the neighborhood of his painting studio. In them he emphasizes the dramatic changes in familiar sites, sometimes with near prophetic forecasting its imminent demise.
Spending Time is a demonstration of applied learning. Anderson displays the outcomes of three acts of prolonged observation, respectively of a window view, a young bonsai tree, and a coconut palm frond. Anderson’s durational drawing and video work look to gain a sense of the world through careful attention to pace and scale.
An opening made by splitting or cleaving, to burst open or split. Geologically, rift refers to a feature exposed through tearing the earth’s crust. Rift is an action which exposes the space between, and makes the hidden visible. Taylor’s exhibition is about transformation and metamorphosis. He is fascinated by the reorganization of material and form through process.
