Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art is proud to present Hymn to Beauty,
the first US solo exhibition of work by UK artist HUSH. An opening reception
will be held on Thursday, March 5th, 2009 from 7.00pm – 10.00pm, with the
artist in attendance. Work in the show will include Acrylic Paint, Screen
Print, Spray Paint, Ink, and Tea on Canvas and Wood as well as a site
specific installation. The exhibition will be open for viewing through
Thursday, March 26th 2009 from 1.00pm -7.00pm.
Hush’s work has been described as a sensory assault of shape, color, and
character. Inspired by the portrayal of the female form in art, the artist
builds up and tears down layers of paint and images as he works, “letting
the canvas and marks take their own path.” The result is an enigmatic
synthesis of anime, pop-infused imagery, graffiti, and graphic design that
exposes the conflict between power and decay, innocence and sexuality, and
the fusion of Eastern and Western culture.
