PETER HUTCHINSON: THE LOGIC OF MOUNTAINS – 1963-2013
March 7th – April 13th, 2013
Born in England, Peter Hutchinson has lived in the United States for over half a century and has practiced art for nearly as long. Beginning as a geometric painter, his close contact with minimal artists in New York such as Sol LeWitt and Tadaaki Kuwayama exposed him to conceptualist thinking at its inception. But Hutchinson turned away from minimalism and conceptualism’s rhetorical bent, preferring to follow a more overtly poetic and nature-oriented path.
His works is many conceptual pieces, its beautiful, theatric, colorful, intelligent and virtually charming.
He belongs to this unpredictable people, talented as god, bursting with color and humor.
Called the “grandfather of narrative art”, he always been an iconoclast. Hutchinson’s ecological philosophy and lifestyle shine through in his work and writings. His works are an odyssey of life and nature and literally invite us to enjoy this world before it’s ending.
