Carpe Diem

Back in June, I posted an item about how Andrew Hahn took over my studio while I was away in Spain for the summer. I cleaned out the studio to the bare walls for him. He has an upcoming show at UNT/TLED in NYC early next year. (You can see his recent work in this blogpost: Unt/tled at the Armory Art Fair NYC 2011.)

Among the many wonderful things about his influence as a fellow artist is that he knows in his bones, the test of mortality on an artist's life. He's always working, he never whines about how precarious the struggle can be, he's always focused on the importance of the poetic, he's an amazingly quick read, and he's a wise ass who never misses an opportunity to pop your bubble with dry sarcasm.

I'm talking about Shaft Hahn.

I was more than pleased when I learned that he wanted to rent my studio over the summer. The following fotos illustrate how an artist accelerates from zero to sixty in three months:
