In the sixties, Hank worked with a little company called Home Hewn building furniture. Chairs and tables had walking legs and a sense of movement. At that time his political interest was in opposing the Vietnam war. By the 1980’s he got an MFA at the University of Colorado and began painting more seriously and making artists books, many of which were about Central American solidarity with the folks getting bombed by the U.S. Lately his painting is about our bellicose foreign policy, Standing Rock, and the threat of fascism.
