Three-Day Show from HUSH in NYCJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 26 Oct 2010
Found, will be held in the beautiful Angels Orensanz Foundation for Contemporary Art starting Friday, November 19th, with a reception from 7-10pm.
The artist here continues his examination of the vitality and transient nature of mark making, tagging and graffiti. Transitioning these street art practices to the studio setting, the artist creates a body of work that brings to light the essence of “action painting” and “pure expressionism”.
Found is comprised of 25 mixed-media works ranging from small to large sized pieces and installation, and a limited edition (50 pieces) hand embellished print.
The special and brief three-day show marks Hush’s New York debut exhibition that deepens his exploration of the resulting emergences brought about by the evanescent quality of street art.
Appreciating and identifying the remains of past tags as points of expression, the artist transitions this influence to his work that he refers to as “action painting” or “pure expressionism”. In his new collection, Hush remains influenced by the escape from the constraints of traditions, the contrasts between old and new, the past meeting the future and the fusion of Eastern and Western culture.
