Jeremy Hush’s “At A Loss For Words” Sneak Peek

My recent visit to Philadelphia brought me to the studio of Jeremy Hush who is in the midst of preparing for a new solo exhibition, At a Loss for Words. Jeremy told me that this particular series of works revolves around dispassion; a lying down and giving up. Human figures are depicted white-eyed and comatose, half-buried in forest ground-cover decomposing into the earth. More sentient animals are seen investigating and, in some cases, nesting inside these abandoned idle human husks.

At a Loss For Words could be seen as being politically-minded or personal. The subject-matter is painfully truthful, but the visuals are, as is always the case with Jeremy’s work, elegant and intricate; the creatures delightful and hopeful. This series of works is thus mindful and, to put it plainly, stunning.

Jeremy sent me some photos for me to share, but I also took a few of my own, published below. All shots of the artwork are details or works in progress – I wouldn’t want to spoil them for you before opening night.

Taking place simultaneously with Borrowed Memories, a two-woman exhibition with Stella Im Hultberg and Tran NguyenAt A Loss for Words opens on September 29th and will be on view until October 20th at Thinkspace gallery in Los Angeles.

    WOW! What an amazing detailed drawing! I love that he actually has his references right beside him and that beautiful shot of the paper with the ink strikes on it is so devoted! Thank you for this sneak peek, I would love to go see it in LA but I’m not from that area. :(
