Hazel Meyer: Sweaty Concepts

Hazel Meyer: Sweaty Concepts

 

With the works shown in Sweaty Concepts*, Hazel Meyer explores disparate objects and events united by her method of drawing-as-care for what is devalued or unnoticed. Documenting the eroticism of “minor” events in the artist’s life and reading practice, this work emerges as a pervert’s archive of throwaways—outdated ads, old porn magazines, pin-buttons, empty plastic bottles, discarded lesbian comic books, cut-off hair—rescued by drawing and insisted upon through the creation of prints and felt banners.
