From the Artrooms Fair to Le Dame Art Gallery

American artist Brian Huber and the elegance of natural patterns

Le Dame Art Gallery is delighted to present American artist Brian Huber in his first UK Solo Show. Brian’s work is based on the abstraction of landscapes, architectural elements and the impact of man on the natural world. Raised in New Orleans, Brian was influenced not only by an unconstrained culture and the rhythmic motions of blues and jazz, but also an environment where hurricanes could change or destroy everything in minutes.

Brian transforms landscapes and man made forms into something new.  His pieces represent physical changes on a grand scale —anything from the construction of a beautiful building to the devastation of a man-made disaster.

Brian cuts and manipulates giant sheets of acrylic paint to create the distinctively sculptural texture of his pieces. The constant change of light and shadow alters the color and pattern of his creations, breathing life into them.

The show will present the Braided and Circle Back series investigating the way we consume reality, playing with light and shadow on wrought ironwork found throughout New Orleans. An abstracted interpretation of the braided rivers and glacial moraines of the Denali Alaska landscape is the focus of Braided.

In January 2017, Brian was among the 70 artists selected for the Artrooms Fair, gaining recognition among collectors and galleries. He recently was shown at the Los Angeles Art Fair and the Palm Springs Art Fair and has an upcoming solo shows in San Miguel de Allende Mexico and Mexico City.

Le Dame Art Gallery is proud to invite London’s art lovers to discover the ultimate elegance of Brian’s works.

The exhibition will run until the 3rd of June 2017.

“An Open Letter to the Art Collector”

We also invite artists to join the “An Open Letter to the Art Collector” project which explores the relationship between the artist and art collectors. The project started on the Artrooms 2017 edition and it is a series of experiments, installations and essays investigating the complexity of the relationship between the artist and the collector. Artists around the world are invited to write a letter to express their ideas, feelings, experiences and maybe expectations towards the imaginary of the collector, the letter can be anything that the artist establish as one, there are no limits. The most interesting letters will be selected for an installation and/or other publication.
