Israel Hughes, Edges
This is a past event. Saturday, March 30 at 12:00pm 5:00pm
Roll-Up Gallery 1715 S.E. Spokane St., Portland OR 97202
Painter, collage artist and native Oregonian, Israel Hughes presents new mixed media works that celebrate layers, lines and edges. Motivated by formal relationships of shape, color, texture and visual themes, Hughes has created an ensemble of singular abstract works and series under such rubrics as Roman Ruins, Figures and Clocks. Hughes’ intuitive process and improvisatory style are informed by visual poetry, New York Dada and a storied history as a theater manager and blues musician. It is no wonder that he developed his current work within a self-imposed constraint of 48 hours per piece, all the while listening to Thelonious Monk and John Cage.
Opening reception with artist in attendance: Friday, March 1, 5-9 p.m.
Roll-Up is an artist-run, contemporary exhibition space.
Gallery hours: Friday–Saturday, noon-5 p.m. and by appointment.
