SANTA FE, NM.- In Andrew Huffman’s debut exhibition with David Richard Gallery, he presents a series of new paintings entitled, Modulated. Based on the grid and utilizing an overlapping lattice structure, these hard edge paintings have many different combinations of hues and color interactions that explore illusory space and depth in a two-dimensional picture plane and challenge the viewer’s visual perception.

Huffman’s art-making practice includes painting, installation and sculpture in a variety of media. He uses color and color interactions combined with scale and bold compositions to push the boundaries of each medium and explore real and illusory space. His radical approaches and combinations of media, symbols and hues create a very personal and unique experience for viewers and evokes design and architectural references, particularly in his installations.

The focus of this exhibition is a new series of paintings, each titled Modulated with a specific number, where the number refers to the number of different color interactions working together within that particular painting. This series is based on the grid with an overlapping woven lattice structure and crisp, clean hard edges. Huffman’s systematic approach to painting allows additional patterns to develop and emerge in an array of palettes. The paintings also wrap around the sides and are literally floated off the wall, giving them an object-like quality and encouraging viewers to walk around the painting and engage from different angles and distances. Viewing from many different angles and distances provides an even broader range of hues and optical experience, thus challenging the viewer’s perception and triggering a familiarity and range of interconnections.

A spirited, highly motivated and talented artist, Huffman is completing a two-year artist and residency program at Redline in Denver, Colorado (2016-2018). In April, 2018 an installation that he conceived and curated, “Locus Point”, was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver. His exhibitions in the US have mostly been in the Midwest. Internationally, his artworks have been exhibited at the Neurotitan Gallery in Berlin, Germany, and he has a mural exhibited in Old Dali City, in Yunnan, China.

Huffman received his BFA in painting and printmaking in 2008 from the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio, as well an MFA in painting with honors in 2012 from the University of Kansas. While completing his MFA, he taught undergraduate courses in drawing, painting and art concepts. He completed an eight-month-long artist residency in 2009 at the Chop Chop Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, where he also had a collaborative dual solo show with his older sister, artist Rachael Huffman, entitled, Space’n’Digestion. Born in 1986 in Newton, Kansas, Huffman is the youngest of five creative children and was reared in the historic city of Lawrence, Kansas.
