Skip Hunt Particles RECEPTION

November 24th, 2009 - Austin, TX

This show was up at Thunderbird Cafe in a different form. This time the display has changed into more of an "installation" using thin wooden dowels and tiny wooden clothespins.

"For this show I wanted to play around a bit and experiment with abstracts. I was curious whether or not the nature of composed abstract photographic images consisting of mostly color and texture... would still hold up when sliced and dissected into individual pieces.

I found that they did in fact hold up quite well! And in some cases, portions were even stronger than the whole.

The display was something I wanted to play around will as well, so I decided to slice up large abstracts into smaller pieces on a grid. I printed them and clipped them in a wooden grid using long wooden dowels and miniature clothespins and put the entire piece back together like an assortment of butterfly pieces making up a larger butterfly."

~ Skip Hunt

For your musical entertainment there will be two didgeridoos playing in different keys. The effect of this is simply amazing.
