This is a mid-70's painting by Huband showing a more representational style. It illustrates his interest in art history with this modern interpretation of the crucifixion based in part on Grunewald's, Isenheim Alterpiece.

About the Artist

Artist Statement

I am an artist who works from the inside out rather than from the outside in. I do not try to duplicate reality, but to interpret what I see and create a separate, new and personal reality.

Both subject and style of my work evolve from the manipulation of the materials from which it is made and is subject to radical changes throughout its evolution.

A painting is begun with no prior plans or ideas but rather to find out what will reveal itself once I am involved with it.

I believe in the physical uniqueness of a work of art as separate from what it represents, if anything. In my opinion a painting of an apple should not look like an apple but like a painting of an apple. Thereby insisting on the painting being a separate reality and not a reproduction or copy.
