HUSH new show “Twin” Saturday at New Image Art Gallery in West Hollywood, CA.

Quietly exuberant Hush opens a brand new collection of his pieces at New Image tomorrow night, and he’s been spraying the bejezus out of the walls of the gallery before hanging the new pieces.

Gallery owner Marsea Goldberg, brings Hush to her space after a number of years of watching his work evolve. “The interesting thing about Hush’s art is the combination of influences. His artwork posses a distinct link to traditional figurative painting specific to the UK while also possessing an elegant combination of  the abstract and decorative,” she says.

New Image Art Presents: “Twin” by Hush (West Hollywood, CA)

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.

New Image Art Presents: David Ellis “Mola Salsa” (Los Angeles, CA)

David Ellis


7 TO 10PM

Mola Salsa
David Ellis’s newest exhibition, Mola Salsa explores process with 15 new works on paper and a new motion painting. Reflecting on images from his childhood in rural North Carolina, David draws animals, trees, clouds and images dear to him. For this exhibition Ellis engages the idea of the animal spirit to depict his ideas of transformation. Ellis also makes imagery derived from plumes of smoke and steam originally inspired by witnessing an active volcano. These linear works he calls “flow” also describes rivers, both above and below the surface. This language embodies his belief that no condition is permanent.

In the project room Ellis will show his most recent motion painting “Animal.””Animal” is a 10-minute, high-definition, edition of 6, commissioned by Landmarks in Austin, Texas in 2010. Motion painting is a time based media technique that renders the process of painting into a cinematic experience.

In ancient Roman religion, mola salsa (“salted flour”) was a mixture prepared by the Vestal Virgins and used in every official sacrifice. It was sprinkled on the forehead and between the horns of animal victims before they were sacrificed, as well as on the altar and in the sacred fire. It was a common offering to the household hearth.[1]

In his explorations of movement, change, and rhythm David Ellis effectively combines his talent for visual representation. By utilizing various elements of music making-collaboration, improvisation, timing, and repetition- Ellis enlivens his creative process and thus his viewer’s experience through intricate experimental videos and complicated kinetic sound sculptures. David Ellis has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, PS1, and the MOMA, New York to name a few. He looks forward to a forthcoming solo show this June in New York City, a solo booth project at Pulse, NY in March 2011, and an exhibition with Agnes B. before the end of 2011.
