Brian Kennon

Authored in 2007 as part of Kennon's exhibition "Long Live Rock 'N' Roll/Richard Hawkins Decapitated Head" at Daniel Hug gallery in Los Angeles, Forest is a three volume set that reprints two bodies of work (Hawkins' and Martin's) and accompanies them with a third volume. The publication of Forest caps off a series of works (2005-2007) in which Kennon uses the theme of the forest, as understood through the aesthetics of Metal, to suggest a parallel context for Richard Hawkins' Disembodied Zombie works.

The three books are: Forest, a book of forest images collected from the internet; Richard Hawkins, Disembodied Zombies, 1997, a catalog of 7 digital works of severed, floating heads by Richard Hawkins; and Agnes Martin Untitled #1-10, 1990 which reprints a suite of 10 grid-based drawings by Agnes Martin.

The deluxe edition of Forest is printed with a different color on the sleeve. Signed/numbered edition of 10. $100. Contact for more info.
