    About The Work

    Hammer, Stick, Same thang, 2017 is an edition that is based off an original painting. In this work, Awol has appropriated the iconic arm & hammer image and logo which is both localized and ubiquitous and appears across the country in interchangeable locales, signifying a variety of ethnicities and communities. Stripping the logo of its relationship to the ancient mythologies and products and the surrounding urban landscapes, it becomes both a meditation on post-Warholian production, and a response to color theory recalling Joseph Albers’ pedagogical exercises that influenced Erizku when he was a student at Cooper Union. The original artwork was painted on sheets of OSB instead of canvas and teeters on the divide between the studio and the street responding to different moments in art history, as well as the constantly evolving surface of the city.
