1. Nathan Hylden’s work is deeply informed by process. In his recent series he used a photograph of his studio as a starting point, which he silkscreened onto numerous of aluminum panels, slightly changing the placement of the image for each work.
He works in series, creating a number of works all at once. Making broad gestures with paint that overlap and affect multiple canvases, he creates a coherent group of works that are intrinsically linked in shared materials and aesthetics.
His conceptually based works reflect a harmonious balance between manual brushstrokes and automated actions like silkscreen.
