Opening this Saturday, March 8th at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles, California is Andrew Hem’s solo show “Dream But Don’t Sleep.” Hem’s style is a one of a kind, immediate aesthetic signature that pursues the dreamlands that have resulted from his upbringing in a war torn Cambodia as well as the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. The work presented here in “Dream But Don’t Sleep" seems to find Andrew at his best yet and poises him as one of the leaders in New Contemporary art.
"Perch" ; Oil sketch/doodle from yesterday.
Three Jewish resistance members about to be executed during the Warsaw Ghetto uprising in 1944. The range of emotions is obvious; one in mortal fear and pleading, one erect and defiant, and one resigned and relaxed. During the uprising, the Jews managed to hold off the Nazis for a while, killing many and wounding more before being overrun and burned out of hiding.

Woman with dead child,
Nyala bulls (Tragelaphus angasii), southern Africa
I did not realize these creatures were real and I really, really like them.
I love Nyala they’re like punk rock antelopes with their back Mohawks
Also when they notice a potential competitor or threat they freeze up and puff out as much as they can before walking in stiff slow motion towards it in an attempt to show dominance it’s the most adorable goofy thing
