Skylar Hughes investigates relationships, associations, and the artistic process in the paintings and collages on display in One Big Gust of Wind. The works hover on the edge between abstraction and representation, the familiar and the unrecognizable, and conscious and unconscious painterly gesture.
Rooted in the exploration of the artistic process, Hughes’ works also search for understanding of oneself and of the passage of time. As Hughes explains, “I’ve always considered my work as a kind of placeholder for a period of time in my life, something to put down not just to show for, but in order to understand and move on from.” Skylar Hughes is a Connecticut-born artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. He earned a B.F.A. from the Hartford Art School in 2009. One Big Gust of Wind is his first solo exhibition.
The reception is June 16 from 3-4:30 p.m. with remarks at 3:30 p.m.
