Artist Statement (from a speech by Robert F. Kennedy)

Air pollution advertising for cigarettes,

ambulances to clear our highways carnage

special locks for our doors,

jails for those who break them..

napalm bombs for our wars

destruction of the redwoods

death of Lake Superior

dissemination of bubonic plague

equipment for riots with the inferior

slums built on their ashes

and TV programs which glorify violence to sell goods to the children..

THE LISA ADAMS WRITE UP

September 2002


Lisa Adams Write Up

David Hinnebusch was my student in 1998 at the Santa Monica College of Design, Art and Architecture, where at first I found him to be annoying and insistent. These types of students can be nightmares, however there were a number of redeeming aspects about David -- he would do anything, try anything, take any amount of shit off anyone, was not afraid to make a fool of himself, had a bizarre sense of humor and above all he persisted in just doing his work.


I thought he was either truly mad or he really wanted something out of the experience of art making or perhaps both. He was like a child who could barely take direction. I think the only thing I might have actually succeeded in doing was introducing him to the work of painter Francesco Clemente.
 
After school I lost track of David, only to rediscover him casually a couple of years later at an opening. He looked as crazy as I had remembered him and I thought to myself, do I really want to reconnect with this guy? We talked for a while and, as usual, David was always very nice and seemed to have a lot of respect for me. It's hard to ice someone who genuinely seems to like you for whatever reason.


He told me that he was currently showing his work, selling his work and to some extent making his work on the Venice boardwalk. This really interested me, in part, because I had always thought that doing so might be a great performance piece for a “trained” artist who had gone through the rigors of an M.F.A. program and because I would never have the guts to do such a thing myself. It would also be interesting just to see how people might react to him.  How would they treat an artist such as David, someone who was seriously doing their work, publicly, on the boardwalk?


A couple of weeks later I went to the Venice boardwalk with a date and came upon David's set up. My date was an artist well-known for his career in the late eighties and early nineties when artists thought a lot about career maneuvers and the money that could be made. Predictably, my date was mortified when I seriously engaged David that day about his work and the fact that he chose to "inhabit" the boardwalk Thursday through Sunday every week.


After on-going discussions with David, I believe that his work is very simple -- it is about following his interests, of which David has many. David is not a good editor of his own work and I'm not convinced he should be either. His work is about something other than making the right moves to impress, to sell or to maintain consistency. I am convinced that making use of the Venice boardwalk was a brilliant and intuitive action on his part. It seems that the chaos the boardwalk provides, day in and day out, is a clear external manifestation of David's internal lan ape. Visually, David reminds me of the Venice version of painter Roberto Matta -- gone wrong.


The artist Max Ernst got fed up with living in New York City and decided to head west with his then wife Dorothea Tanning. When they arrived at Sedona, Arizona Ernst suddenly realized that he'd come upon the place he'd been painting about all these years, never knowing that such a place actually existed in reality until that moment. They settled there and he lived out the rest of his natural life.


This is what I think happened to David. He'd been making art about the kind of chaos one finds on the Venice boardwalk and never truly made the connection until he put himself there. It seems that his work is given a fuller understanding by virtue of the context the boardwalk provides.


Of his own admission, David is an exhibitionist though he claims that he makes his work in "private time." Working and exhibiting on the boardwalk seems to provide a venue for both aspects of his person. He says that he makes his paintings on the boardwalk to pass the time and that in essence it is no different than working in his studio. He is able to close out the external chaos enough to focus on the internal one. David is a person of porous boundaries, maybe few boundaries altogether and working in the manner that he does is smart. It allows him to just be, see and be seen and do whatever interests him within a context which itself is porous. David's work engenders the spirit of the Venice boardwalk and in turn the boardwalk provides David with more than perhaps even he is aware of.
