September 1 – October 18, 2019 / The Art Gallery
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.

Cody Anderson: Spending Time

Two images of an open window; one shaded with pencil and one colored
October 14 – November 1, 2019 / Commons Gallery
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.

BRAD EVAN TAYLOR : RIFT

November 3 – December 13, 2019 / The Art Gallery
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.
