GalleryHomeland opening reception: Alter Deus by Christoph Hueppi
GalleryHomeland hosts Zurich artist-in-residence Christoph Hueppi for his first trip to and solo show in Houston. Hueppi marks the gallery's fourth visiting artist to Houston and the first at its newest location. Hueppi will reside in Houston for the duration of his five-week exhibition.
Hueppi's latest body of work dives deep into the realm and odd mysteries of microscopic organisms, molecular sciences and developing technologies. Through his paintings, Hueppi's extreme techniques and loud color palette creates a series of hypnotic imagery and visual vastness. His newest body of work focuses on the strange visual clues used in new scientific developments. Working with precision, his painting style often times mimics the digital and computer realm of scientific realizations. Focusing on the ideas of bacteria, viruses, cell structure and microscopic discoveries, Hueppi's paintings takes a new spin on the unseen. Through his own hand and vision Hueppi beautifully recreates these ideas and progresses through the use of loud colors, fine line work and a variety of process.
On view through May 3.
