Passing Through – Hush

Check out this sick piece by Hush which is currently showing at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco. In Passing Through, Hush honors the empowered modern woman while celebrating the creative expression of street art. The series is a darker body of work visiting the concept of life and death. These works are inspired by Hush's frequent travels and the graffiti he documents along the way. Hush covers the canvas with paint, graffiti tags, and collaged photocopies from graphic novels and old comics. He then uses blown up hand drawings of manga girls and screen prints them onto the canvas, embracing the medium's imperfections by masking off specific parts to be hand painted in later. Hush paints and tags between screens to achieve a complex multilayered texture, defacing the work to reference the weathered, transient quality of street art. Passing Through will be on view through June 5th, 2010. Shooting Gallery 839 Larkin St San Francisco, CA 94109 Tue-Sat 12-7pm Shooting Gallery website photo via arrested motion
