Hush returns to Los Angeles with a new collection of work reflecting his unique blend of street
and cross-cultural aesthetics. Playing primarily with the idea of duality, the exhibition is a
carefully calibrated experience of Twin paintings-15 mixed-media works on canvas. Using the
symbolic subject matter of the female form, Hush has produced a large-scale installation in
which the gallery walls capture the essence of “action painting” and “pure expressionism” along
with traditional elements of fine art.
As a body of work, TWIN explores the nature of duality. By varying his approach to the same
image, Hush exposes nature’s inherent polarity. The juxtaposition of light and dark reveals the
complexity of conflict and unity-and dichotomies present within the human ego. TWIN is a
fascinating confrontation and debate on common conceptions of power, innocence, beauty and
sexuality. The collection also represents the blending of the street art aesthetic- as
simultaneously destructive and beautiful.
New Image Art is pleased to present TWIN, the highly anticipated solo show by UK-based artist HUSH.
