When Andrew King was graduating and I was a senior in college, we were talking about one day having a group show but I wasn’t sure it would ever happen. He got us together with Jonathan Rypkema and Anna Hopkins a few years later and we proposed Hello My Name Is as an introductory show for our new works at Redux Contemporary Art Center. Having all graduated within a few years of each other from the College of Charleston, it was exciting to compile the work we’d each come up with out of school. I’m really proud of these artists and was stoked to be in a show with such strong and passionate works.
Together we put an installation in the center of the gallery of hanging palm frond points painted and sealed, with funding from the Lowcountry Quarterly Arts Grant Program.
