We’ve been wanting to talk about art more. As artists, we’re always interested in new and innovative things that other artists are doing. Occasionally that applies to websites, but occasionally that applies to, you know, real art — tangible art you can look at and (possibly) touch and smell and experience. I’m hoping that this post represents the first in a series of posts about art and artists. Stuff we like and would like to share.
Jenevieve Hubbard is a local artist in Salt Lake City. While originally from Cedar City, Utah, she spent much of her childhood in a native traditional village in Alaska, and absorbed the sights, sounds, smells and stories of the Y’upik people.
Her multimedia art caught our attention because she often uses unconventional materials like dirt, tea and india ink. Her latest body of work, titled Narrow Passage, uses embroidered silk carved into wood panels. If you’re in the Salt Lake Area you should consider checking out her show at the Charley Hafen Gallery.
Here is a collection of some of her previous work:
