HONG KONG.- Simon Lee Gallery is presenting an exhibition of new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Alex Hubbard. This is his second solo exhibition with the gallery and his inaugural presentation in Hong Kong.

Hubbard’s work encompasses video art, sculpture and painting, exploring the boundaries of each via a crossexamination that invigorates an array of media in new and inventive ways. In his painting practice, the artist brings together a range of industrial materials, such as resin, urethane, oil and wax, using traditional techniques to pour, pull and drip his media across the canvas, sometimes with the assistance of a squeegee. Fields of colour underlaid with industrial prints are interrupted with richly pooled, dripped and poured resin and oil paint. Working with fastdrying materials, Hubbard embraces chance happenings, revealing the autonomy of his chosen media. Nonetheless, compositional spontaneity is achieved through meticulous layering that results in unexpected formal and chemical combinations. His latest process involves UV printing technology that unites the languages of abstraction and figuration in a single canvas via underlying prints of machinery and everyday items.

Alex Hubbard was born in Toledo, OR in 1975 and lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. He has been the subject of solo museum presentations at Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA (2014) and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2012). Major group shows include Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA (2018); De La Cruz Collection, Miami, FL (2017); Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC (2016) and Le Consortium, Dijon, France (2014). In 2010 Hubbard was included in the Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY. In 2013 Hubbard was a recipient of the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award. His work is housed in prominent international collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria, Victoria, Australia; Colleción Jumex, Mexico City, Mexico; Zabludowicz Collection, London, UK; Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN.
