I asked my favorite artists to listen to the new Hawke album and make works of art inspired by the music.
The following artists contributed paintings, photos, sculptures and mixed media artwork
The collection includes works by Felipe Merida, Fernando Apodaca, Handiedan, Duser, Ursula X. Young, Pure Evil, Owen Maigret, Robert Ogden, Evan Venegas, Trina Merry, Gina Bieber, Joe B, Justin Young, Dave Washer, Briejock Joslyn Lawrence and Brian Kuhlman and Araceli Santos de Bieber.
Here’s a video of the opening night at Project One Gallery in San Francisco.
One of the unexpected themes of the collection was a thread of creations that used natural elements. Fernando Apodaca, who has produced music videos for Pearl Jam, Chris Cornell and The New York Dolls constructed a piece using his own hair to build three iconic plus signs. Dave Washer created a water fountain within an intricate rock garden, Justin Young built a cloud installation including projections and a fish tank with a mermaid’s garden, and I make a plus sign sculpture fashioned from marijuana embedded in a plastic resin.
