Hush “Unseen” at Corey Helford Gallery Recap

British artist Hush debuted his latest body of work in his solo show Unseen at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA.

HUSH unveiled a set of portraits featuring wide faced models delicately cloaked in robes of graffiti tags and floral print. Each of the model’s eyes were blackened out (possible tie in to the show’s title, Unseen) and by losing the window to the models’ soul the viewer loses attachment to the subject. The focus point stops being about the models and more of the relationship between the delicateness of the female form contrasted with the rawness of the tags. Resulting in HUSH being able to deconstruct the masculinity and aggressive nature of graffiti and soften it right before the viewer’s eyes.

Displaying alongside his work for the first time ever was HUSHʼs abstract paintings consisting of mixed media, screen-printed paintings, pencil studies, minimal pieces, screen prints and stickers collage on top of wood.
