"James" explores the artist's talents with his use of photography and sculpture. His themes usually include realism with transparency, the material and chemical nature of photography, personal and cultural memory, and more. His work is considered contemporary art as he challenges the idea of photography for visitors and artists alike.
"Forest" gives visitors a peek into the artist's life through his works. He is an artist that has not been explored too much, which makes this exhibition a special one. The works have been borrowed from the Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Whitey Museum of American Art.
"James" will be on display until January 12, 2014 while "Forest" will be on display until January 5, 2014. The Hammer Museum is located on Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles. It is open every day at 11:00am, but is closed on Mondays. There is a cost for admission.
