Ezra Hubbard, Acclaimed Multidisciplinary Artist Is Featured At Armory Art Center Art Salon On Tuesday, January 7 . Public Is Invited To Meet The Artist And Enjoy This Networking Opportunity

The Armory Art Center brings Ezra Hubbard to the next Art Salon, led by Elle Schorr on Tuesday, January 7.  The public is invited to meet Ezra, an interdisciplinary artist who works in video, installation, paint, and ink. At the core of this recent work is a commitment to examine emotional content in history. He sees the current re-examination of history as a yearning for acknowledgment of others emotional lives. By manipulating 3D printers, he is able to create luminous ethereal three dimensional forms.  Stop and look at the art…hear the creators…share the wonder!  The Rickie Report gives you the details and some sneak peeks. Kudos, Elle, for bringing us internationally, nationally, and locally based artists who help us better understand the creative process!

Artist, Ezra Hubbard

 

 

Ezra Hubbard is an interdisciplinary artist who works in video, installation, paint, and ink. At the core of this recent work is a commitment to examine emotional content in history. Hubbard sees the current re-examination of history as a yearning for acknowledgment of others emotional lives. By manipulating 3D printers, he is able to create luminous ethereal three dimensional forms. In many traditional cultures, circular structures are places set aside for transformation and guidance. In his current installation, on display at the 3rd Biennial “Artists of Art Salon” Exhibition, Hubbard offers the same. Sound is infused into the space to bring a sense of immediacy and to create a place for reflection and free association.

Tim B. Wride, Curator of Photography at The Norton Museum, recently wrote, “Ezra has a keen sensitivity and hard-won ability to interweave the weight of sculpture, the luminosity of painting, and emotion of light. Rarely has gravity appeared so ethereal.”  Fascinated by the transmission and reflection of light, Hubbard “seeks to create memories and events rather than just an interesting thing to observe.” Hubbard, who has a lifelong connection with the photography of Walker Evans, drew inspiration from Evans’ notion that “It’s easy to photograph light reflecting from a surface, the truly hard part is capturing the light in the air.” The celebrated artist of the Light and Space movement, Larry Bell described Hubbard’s recent work, “as portraits of another species of being. Who are these creatures you have created, Dr. Frankenstein?” Hubbard says his work is about movement towards transcendence and states that the work “is sparked by deep reflections on people, dreams, time, and the subconscious.”
