There are a few reasons that Charleston artist Andrew King created and pitched the idea for Hello, My Name Is… to Redux Contemporary Art Center. The first is that the show, which features King’s work alongside three other local artists, needed a big space to exist in, and Redux has that in spades. The second is that King felt a kinship with the other three artists he selected: Anna Hopkins, Jonathan Rypkema, and Heather Thornton, because they all began their studies in one artistic medium and then evolved into another.
