James Hyde: Falk Visiting Artist

  • Jun 27, 2004 – Sep 26, 2004
Installation view: Weatherspoon Art Museum, 2004.

James Hyde is one of a number of artists who championed abstract painting in the late 1990s by redefining the genre itself. His wry and witty creations break down rather than test boundaries. Using a wide and unlikely group of materials on which to paint — Styrofoam, glass boxes, carpets, paper cutouts, furniture, and pillows — Hyde creates hybrid works that often seem as much sculpture as painting, their elements often as much surface as support. Hyde will be in residence at UNCG in mid-September and will give a gallery talk on September 13, 2004 and a public slide lecture on his work on September 14, 2004. 

We have six galleries located on the first and second levels of the museum, view our gallery map.
