Statement

I confront themes of isolation, abandonment, destruction and resilience by drawing from personal experience and an emotional reaction to the environment. Pop-inspired stormy panoramas littered with abandoned barns, highways slicing through fields and looming gas stations are common subject matter. Through a mix of mediums including spray enamel, resin and photography I explore the complexities of the American landscape. My work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions around the Bay Area and Art Fairs across the United States.

Melissa Hutton is a contemporary artist living in San Francisco. Through images of abandoned barns, glowing gas stations, and manicured houses Melissa’s work explores the complexities of both the American and her own personal landscape.

Some of her most well known pieces are pop-inspired stormy panoramas littered with abandoned barns, highways slicing through fields and looming gas stations. Melissa explores the complexity of the American landscape by mixing mediums including spray enamel, resin and photography.
