Explorations

Gerald Huth 

November 1st – 29th, 2011 

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 5th, 6 – 9 pm 

Gallery 1044 is pleased to present Explorations, an exhibition by the artist Gerald Huth that deals with the human condition, events and experiences of the artist's life, and the world around him. Many of his pieces also reflect the influences of the arts of other cultures and civilizations, encountered during his extensive travels in Asia, Europe, Central America, and the Middle East. Huth says that his “goal as an artist is to fulfill the human expression of the time in which we live.”

The larger pieces, which Huth calls “construction/paintings,” combine oil painting on various-shaped, non-rectangular canvasses with wood sculpture. There will be a large series of his newest mixed-media collages,which integrate a wide variety of papers with drawing techniques such as pastel, charcoal, watercolor, and ink. The most recent works are collage/sculptures, mounted on rotating cylinders,and combining the effects of both two- and three-dimensional art. In all the work there is a rich use of color, a great variety of textures and materials, and the ever-present beauty of the human form.

Gerald Huth has been on a journey of art and "explorations" for some 40 years. Originally from New York, Huth received his degree in art and architecture from the University of Pennsylvania, and continued his studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts d'Avignon (France), and the Art Students' League of New York. He has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe, particularly in Switzerland, Germany, and France. Huth's work can be found in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum, San Francisco State University, the Rene diRosa Collection, the Berlin Art Center, and in many other public and private collections around the world.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday to Friday 12 – 6 pm; Saturday 11 am – 4 pm
