  • Been seeing alot of rainbow colors used on black lately. Just got a vendors card with a similar color scheme.

    Wait, maybe that’s only twice…

  • Jeff thank you for putting so much time and effort into making Tangents happen. Great work! I had an awesome time! -tys

  • jeff, thank you for putting on a successful show.
    you and reid should be proud of yourselves.
    thank you for the amazing opportunity.

  • EmilyChou

    thanks for such a great show jeff! It was a real treat. Not to mention sick music.

  • Graeme

    Congrats to everyone involved in the show last night. Espesh Jeff and Reid.
    Really feeling the work by Ramsey. Has a Kandinsky-esque feel to it.
    Loved the purple cream colour field by Jennilee (I think she said it was a puddle?)
    Thankful to Hamada to get me in front of Kenichi’s work. Beautiful.
    Pretty Blamo! at Fortune after too. A good night.

  • glad you came out and had fun Graeme! definitely see some Kandinsky in the Ramsey drawings – it was also really cool to see probably 40% of a crowd that i’d never seen at other art shows come out to it

    packed house, maybe a little too packed – there was a good hour or so where i couldn’t walk from one end to the other.

  • victoria

    really wanted to go to that.
    instead i had my wisdom teeth removed.
    joy.

Under the guidance of another artist John Hina aka Prime, Hadar’s work continues to explore a modern-day form of mo’olelo or ancient Hawaiian storytelling.
