LEAVES OF GRASS:
works by Steven L. Anderson and Susan Hable Smith
September 20 to November 8
artist talk: Sat, October 4, 1pm
Steven L. Anderson and Susan Hable Smith both explore their relationship to the natural world in their first two-person exhibit at Poem 88. Anderson's work is multifaceted. He creates drawings and photographs that are artifacts of profound engagement with place. Through an artist residency at the Joshua Tree National Park and through commissioned work for the Hammer Museum, Anderson explores the power of the natural world to alter our perspective and remind us that we are also part of nature. While this may seem elementary, Anderson's sensitive drawings and installations can be seen as a transmission of energy and the language of the natural world.
