We have recently acquired new work by L.A. Based artist, Tim Hussey. Tim is originally from Charleston, but currently works out of his studio in California.
Hussey’s images are often quite dark and brooding despite an abundance of white space. Hussey’s choice of color contributes to this – muted pigments that give an impression of impermanence and decay. Nothing on the canvas is sacred. Layers are often wounded by palette knives to reveal yellowed newsprint and scraps of discarded diaries beneath. Bright smears of green, yellow and red offer some reprieve from the darkness. Titles rife with puns also lend his work with a humorous edge. With this artists work, things are always liable to change and progress in new directions. Stagnation is not an option.
Tim recently finished a huge mural project in Santa Monica. Hussey's work was also recently featured in Harper's Magazine.
We hope you can come by the gallery soon, and take a look at his incredible work.
