New Paintings and Works on Paper
September 6 - October 11, 2003
Opening reception for the artist, Saturday, September 13th, 5 - 7pm.
The Mark Moore Gallery is proud to present Todd Hebert in his first major
Los Angeles solo exhibition. Hebert grew up in North Dakota and is an MFA graduate of Rhode Island School of Design. He now lives and works in Los Angeles and has shown extensively through out the Southwest.
Hebert's work is an American lexicon: scarecrows, picnic coolers, snowmen, ceramic owls, and satellite dishes. The images are mysteriously odd - a kind of suburban symbolism meets the allegories of the seasons (and it is definitely not Hallmark in sensibility). The artist plays off the grandeur of nature with absurd juxtapositions ? picnic tables at the foot of an immense ice flow. For Hebert, the cycle of nature is really the cycle of seasonal artifacts and holiday dramas. His paintings are peculiar, minimal narratives on the passing of time.
