Artist-in-Residence Luke Huling
Geriatric: Narratives of Forgotten Stories
Reception: Friday, July 3, 5-8 p.m.
View in our Folsom Gallery through July 31
Artist-in-Residence Luke Huling works with ceramics and metals to create figurative sculptures, most life-size. Huling explores stories and people that have been forgotten due to the passing of time by capturing the life history, stories, and present state of mind in his figures. Huling seeks to record the stories and people that are disappearing every day due to a lack of listeners.
A Note From the Gallery Director
In our Folsom Gallery, LUX Artist-in-Residence Luke Huling presents his newest body of work in Geriatric: Narratives of Forgotten Stories. Ever since he was a child and watched his grandmother struggle with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Huling has been compelled by themes of aging and memory. Through his figurative sculptures, he captures the essence of who these people are and were. At times funny and whimsical, and other times sobering and pensive, these characters echo with a very human sense of reality. Huling is set to complete the first year of his residency, and has maintained an impressive studio practice while bringing tremendous energy to the education program with his background in not only ceramics, but metalsmithing as well. Huling’s talents will be on display for one month only, so be sure to stop in soon.
