Harris Harvey Gallery is pleased to present BLOOM, by Richard Hutter. The Seattle painter and printmaker creates abstract works with a bold graphic sensibility. Unified by an ongoing exploration of organic forms seen through an architectural lens, the work combines a range of mediums: painting, collage, printmaking, and drawing. Over his career, Hutter has constructed a unique visual language of floral shapes and clean, repetitive forms created using drafting tools. His vocabulary conflates minimal and pop aesthetics with nostalgic languages of images and writings from textbooks and encyclopedias. With a fondness for “found” imagery, Hutter often incorporates engineering texts and diagrams for mechanical objects that contrast with the florid and bulbous shapes he overlays. The artist’ love of surface, texture, and pattern dominates formal issues, symbolic, or conceptual concerns.
