Current Gallery Artist

Russel Hulsey, August 28, 2011

Anti Portraits culls works by Louisville-based Artist Russel Hulsey from 2007-present.  The exhibition consists of sixteen individual works in three categories: Jack Kerouac’s America, Television Families, and a simple, yet refined, tribute to late Artist and friend Stephen Irwin.  All three categories merge together here to form: “Anti-Portraits.”  The artist states, “This exhibition is so-titled because of my interest in portraiture, or rather, what the ‘portrait’ can be.  I hope to approach this age-old tradition with a poetic sensibility, and to push into territories that speak not only to presence but, also to impermanence, action, and memory.”
