LANCASTER, PA.- The Demuth Museum is presenting Littoral: John Hubbard in Context. John Hubbard (b. 1931), born and educated in America, has been an ex-patriot since 1961, living and painting in Dorset, England. For Hubbard’s formative years he studied at Harvard and the Art Students League and then with Hans Hoffman; Abstract Expressionism pervaded his education.

Hubbard’s love of nature and the countryside has been reflected in his work over the years. In particular, the artist has been drawn to the littoral zone, an indeterminate space along the shoreline that is neither land nor sea. This exhibit will feature oil paintings and charcoal drawings that fix within the confines of a single image the meeting of the shifting waters and spray of the sea with the rocks and sand of the shoreline fused with the ever-changing light. This combination yields in Hubbard’s work extraordinary surfaces and combinations of mark making that convey a sense of place.

Painters have chosen the coast of England as fruitful subject matter for many years, including fellow American painters Winslow Homer and William Trost Richards. To place Hubbard’s work in context, this exhibit will also highlight examples of their work as well as Japanese landscape prints which were another major influence on Hubbard.

“Numerous American painters have been drawn across the Atlantic; Charles Demuth made three sojourns to Europe himself and painted in Cornwall, England during his 1912-14 trip abroad,” explains Demuth Museum Executive Director, Anne M. Lampe. “These works exemplify the inspirations John Hubbard found through both the geographic location of where he was drawn to work, as well as his interest in Oriental landscape painting and his training by noted Abstract Expressionists. We are excited to showcase these works rich in visual and contextual appeal.”
