'My work has had a tendency to be a bit autobiographical. Not literally, but under the surface. My reality or state of mind at the time that the collages are made is reflected in the psychology of the work and the stories it tells.

M+B is pleased to announce Cold Wave, Hannah Whitaker’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. The exhibition runs from March 15 to April 26, 2014, with an opening reception on Saturday, March 15 from 6 to 8 pm.
