Sausalito California Artist Brian Huber’s work is based on the abstraction of landscapes, architectural elements and the impact of man on the natural world. Raised in New Orleans, Brian was influenced not only by an unconstrained culture and the rhythmic motions of blues and jazz, but also an environment where hurricanes could change or destroy everything in minutes.
Brian transforms landscapes and manmade forms into something new. His pieces represent physical changes on a grand scale —anything from the construction of a beautiful building to the devastation of a man-made disaster.
Brian cuts and manipulates giant sheets of acrylic paint to create the distinctively sculptural texture of his pieces. The constant change of light and shadow alters the color and pattern of his creations, breathing life into them.
Paintings proposed to to be shown in Rome are from the Braided Series - based on the milk white glacial melt water flowing through the grey moraine river beds in Denali National Park in Alaska. Additional paintings will be from the Circumference Series and visually explore rhythm and cadence.
Room will be transformed with lighting and fabrics to focus the visitor's attention on the sculptural nature of these paintings. The changes in light will alter the shadows cast by the painting texture as the day progresses. Rather than focus on showing smaller pieces two large pieces will dominate the space. Triptychs will be worked into the vertical space between the large window. The goal is to create a serene space with little adornment where the work can be focused on and considered.
