About this Piece

In the 80’s and 90’s Huband’s work shifted onto a less ridged and more free form presentation. Huband seemed to be inspired by the fabric, plant, and figure forms of artists like Matisse and became more about pattern than fully realized three-dimensional form. His palette, in turn, became brighter and more exuberant.

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.
