Philadelphia based artist Jeremy Hush draws us into a secret world in his dark and dense fairytale-like images. He once said that mysteries lie in a hole in the ground or under a rock, and this is where we find his characters. Covered here on our blog, his earth toned works give us a glimpse of the hidden landscape in our own backyard, bustling with tiny imaginary creatures based on real animals and insects. For his upcoming exhibition at Last Rites Gallery in New York, "An Exchanging Glance", he invites us to change our perspective, and see things through his characters' eyes.
Allison Sommers, Jeremy Hush and Susannah Kelly share an interest in creating poetic imagery out of macabre subject matter. The three artists are presenting new bodies of work for their collaborative show, "Irresistible Atrophies," opening at Portland's Antler Gallery on October 30.
