CEDAR CITY, UTAH.- Southern Utah Museum of Art is presenting the work of regional artist Patrick Dean Hubbell. Hubbell's work is featured alongside Contemporary Western Pop artist Billy Schenck and Pop Art titan Andy Warhol. Hubbell’s work is on display now through February 12, 2022 in the Rocki Alice Gallery.

Raised in a small rural town in the Navajo Nation on the Arizona-New Mexico border, Hubbell is considered one of the fastest-rising artists in the region. He was featured in Southwest Art’s list of “21 under 31” and in the past four years, his work has been featured in over twenty exhibitions, including representation by the Modern West Fine Art Gallery in Salt Lake City.

Hubbell's work pulls inspiration from his own life as well as cultural mythologies and traditional Indigenous art. His pattern-driven, atmospheric paintings reflect the exploration of materiality, spirituality, memory, landscape, oral tradition, and contemplation of identity in relation to ideas of contemporary Indigeneity. Hubbell’s works are composed of hand-gathered and ground natural earth pigments from the Navajo Nation, mixed with conventional acrylic and oil paints. He has applied those pigments across a variety of surface treatments, from traditional canvas painting formats, to sculptural installations, to deconstructed canvas and stretcher bar works reminiscent of weaving blankets.

In Hubbell’s work, traditional Navajo art forms and symbols collide with expressive mark-making and rich textures creating a balance and harmony echoing the beauty, ruggedness, and deep roots of the American West. Speaking on his process, Hubbell states, "the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of my life are translated through a combination of intuitive, gestural mark making, automatic drawing, and design."

The seven works on display were made available through a growing partnership between SUMA and Modern West Fine Art. While the Andy Warhol and Billy Schenck exhibitions will be on display through March 19th, Hubbell's work will be returning to Salt Lake in just a few short weeks. Visitors are urged to experience this unique artwork at SUMA while they can. For more information visit SUMA’s website at

Admission to SUMA is free.
