January 10, 2012 Hiroyuki Hamada

I really like Ron van der Ende‘s sculptures.  They are just great for what they are, but I personally feel closeness to his work since I share some of the visual concerns in my work.  I got to know him a little through Facebook and he has asked me to participate in his annual studio music playlist, ArtBBQ.  More than 40 artists have come up with lists of albums they played in their studios in 2011.  I’ve been busy checking out new music there.
