JAN. 9th | Discernible Effects | GROUP EXHIBITION
“Discernible Effects” explores development and influence of social proclamations in the work of 7 contemporary artists. Following the evolution from awareness to execution through photography, print, figurative, collage, textiles and light. In doing so, this exhibition establishes a platform highlighting both cultural diversities and social similarities.
The exhibition includes a photography project 13 years in the making focusing on the women in Cairo, Egypt. Mexican inspired works in Neon light from Los Angeles based artist Daniels Evans. Juxtaposed woodblock prints that explore the human subconscious. Expressionistic figurative pieces from Michele Utley Voigt, recently on view at Art Basel in Miami will also be on display. A print series from Denver, Colorado that evaluates the male standards of female beauty and a series of photographs that examines trophy hunting and the objectification of nonhuman animals.
These varied forms of manifestation represent moments of understanding and in essence, the results of examination that typifies the artist’s quest. Through visual mediums, both conceptual and literal, the process behind each artist’s creation finds form.
Artists on Exhibit: Kristina Key, Edith Hillinger, Nevis Granum, Daniel Evans, Michele Utley Voigt, Jenna Lynch and Kimberly Putnam
INSTALLTION DEBUT | Cultural Crash by Dominga Opazo
The HUD Gallery is pleased to debut a six-month installation by Dominga Opazo. This site-specific installation is a symbolic expression of change and reflection as experienced by the artist. The principal components of copper, textiles and print amalgamated with elevated suspension are a seamless execution of splendor.
The rigorous labor required and the intimacy with organic materials is captivating. The selection of yarns incorporated into the installation derives from her native country of Chile. The staggered panels suspended from the gallery’s thirty-foot ceilings are distinctive and influential.
