hammer_museum Since 1999, the Hammer has commissioned artists to create site-specific projects for our Lobby Wall. Mark Bradford's current installation 'Finding Barry' was created by excavating through 100+ layers of paint on the wall. The 'Barry' part refers to Barry McGee, one of the earliest Lobby Wall artists, whose work from 2000 is pictured here. We found Barry! #tbt #MarkBradford 4d

hammer_museum For his paintings, Joseph Holtzman begins with pieces of polished slate or marble and thinly applies layers of oil paint to the surface of the stone. Using a tool to carve into the paint, he marks the surface with scratches, allowing the marble’s luminosity to shine through. #TextureTuesday # #partsofpaintings 6d
