Opening Reception for Artists: Wayne Hulgin & Jeff Irwin
September 19 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
R.B. Stevenson Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition “Small Scale” featuring paintings by San Diego artist Wayne Hilton and Sculpture by San Diego artist Jeff Irwin.
The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists Saturday, August 19, from 5 to 8 pm. and will remain on view through September 16, 2023. The gallery will be open at 1 pm for early viewing.
Wayne Hulgin artwork involves bold, vivid hues that harmonize and dance in geometric shapes. Through vibrant colors and rigid bodies, my work emanates energy and joyfulness. Each color and shape are purposefully placed, creating a visual language that hopefully engages the viewer. Focusing on clean, sharp-edged precision, I strive to elicit a visceral response to explore the intricate relationship between color, shape, and design. Through this fusion, I seek to convey a message, sparking emotions and engaging the senses in a captivating visual experience.
Jeff Irwin artworks came from a desire to make objects that speak to how humans impact nature. They are all either physically, visually or emotionally fragile, alluding to the concept that nature is fragile. The framed clay works represent specimens under glass that you might find in the natural history museum while the white sculptures represent trophies that you may also find at the natural history museum or some hunter’s den. The framed double shadow works represent the fleeting moments that shadows of nature move across our world of sidewalks and concrete. I often make an initial series of small works to develop special techniques as well as construct a visual and conceptual language that each subsequent body of work can utilize to create larger works.
