Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present renowned draftsman Joel Daniel Phillips’ latest body of work highlighting his first publicly available oil paintings. This is the gallery’s inaugural exhibition in Los Angeles and the artist’s debut solo exhibition in Los Angeles. The opening reception was held on October 9, 2021, and will run to the 30th of October, 2021. 

Elaborating on his “Killing the Negative” series, the Tulsa-based artist’s solo exhibition will include his signature graphite drawings and a selection of oil paintings. Grappling with power, race, class, and stratified socio-economic issues, the ongoing body of work is a meditative response to a selection of Government censored photographs commissioned by the Farm Security Administration (FSA) during the Great Depression. 

On view: October 9 – 30, 2021
