Hazards May Be Present explores San Francisco’s Bayview-Hunters Point Neighborhood through the lens of three deeply rooted residents. Long neglected, these inhabitants’ particular piece of the Bayview is demarcated and defined by the Hunters Point Shipyard, a shuttered U.S. Navy Base closed due to extensive environmental contaminants.

By examining three men’s relationship with their home through their vocation as recyclers, daily proximity to hazardous waste, and their friendship with each other in the midst of an environment fraught with abuse, the drawings explore the complex history of use and misuse of resources that have helped to shape a unique corner of San Francisco.

The new body of works also includes a series of 10 found object drawing/object diptychs, pairing a rendering of a discarded possession with the original found object.
