Zg Gallery is pleased to present Steve Hough's third solo show "STILL" with eight new paintings. Hough's work is an inquiry into the sense of mystery and awe that occupies the transitional space between specific conditions or states. He is interested in the flux between binaries such as image and object, form and flatness, the fleeting and the permanent, the personal and the universal. By creating figurative images solely through the use of surface-distortions and reflective color-shifting auto-paint, he explores the interplay between image, surface and viewer, and references the anonymous reproducibility of contemporary personal experience, its relationship to the boundary membrane of a screen, and the desire to perfect and objectify moments in time - to own them.
Steve Hough was born & raised in Liverpool, England. He received his B.A. from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London and has exhibited his work in New York, Los Angeles, Miami & Basel, Switzerland. "STILL" New Paintings, is on exhibit from May 28 to July 4, 2009. Artist Reception is Friday, June 5th, from 5:30-7:30pm.
