Modern West Fine Art Exhibit | “Equus” by Patrick Dean Hubbell
October 19th – November 30th, 2018
Opening Reception, Friday, October 19th, 6:00-9:00 pm
Modern West Fine Art is thrilled to be featuring “Equus”, Patrick Dean Hubbell’s first solo show at Modern West Fine Art.
"My work is an investigation of identity. I am drawn to the subtle questioning of this examination. I find inspiration in everything and I use various themes rooted in the correlation and the conflict of both my Native American and contemporary mindset. I am equally interested in the abstract qualities of expression as well as representational imagery. Using nature, stories, philosophies, and abstract representations, I am able to depict this existence of identity. My work includes the use of bold and vibrant colors, combined with the integration of various elements of design, and a multitude of line quality and expressive mark making that often mimics what nature provides. These elements allow me to create my own aesthetic value in which reflect a personal experience of memory, physical, mental, and spiritual instances from life. The expressive personality of my work allows the viewer a momentary visual experience."
