“I’d like to think of the word “Untitled” as an empowering description of nakedness. Having focused much of my early life thus far to how I identify myself, “Untitled” continues my research on self-definition realized through different means of transportation. The vehicles being the different mediums I use to make physical these “abstract” ways of seeing — Being.”
Brendon Hawkins is a Multi-disciplinary visual, performance, and sound artist. Brendon’s work looks at past narratives and asks “how does this apply to the life being lived today”. He also uses many found objects to converse about accessibility. A daily practice for Brendon includes waking in the morning, practicing vogue, and taking a walk around the Garfield/Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. On these walks, Brendon picks up street “trash” and recreates the forgotten pieces into present thoughts.
