The Song Dissolves - Detail

Rich textures and layers of collage create a deceivingly exuberant impression in the works of American artist Elliott Hundley. For his first solo exhibition in Greece, Hundley presents a body of recent work that plays with references to contemporary culture in relation to art history and mythology. Hundley's encumbered canvases are like slices of landscape that they emanate a sense of uncertainty, even threat, despite their colourful appearance.

Lens

To make these works, the artist uses paint, magazine cutouts, fabric, straight pins, found objects and other materials sourced from his extensive archive. From afar, they appear like mesmerising tapestries that scintillate with smaller images, textures and colours; but from up close, each work reveals itself to be a dense microcosm of meaning and information, that demands time and attention to be explored and traversed.
