Watchlist Artist: Steven Husby

65GRAND is pleased to present BRUTE FORCe, Steven Husby's first solo exhibition with the gallery.

At first appearing impersonal and cold, the paintings of Steven Husby display a highly individual approach. They are the product of an artist concerned with precision and permutation. Like many abstractionists working today, Husby takes painting as his subject. But that is just the starting point. The artist is concerned not with the meaning or purpose of painting but rather the construction of image. How are visual representations structured? What is the underlying mathematical logic?

Husby's paintings look not only to the rich past of working methods along the lines of Agnes Martin and Ad Reinhardt with their monastic rigor and exhaustive variations, but also contemporary image culture.
