Opens January 18, 2020 and will be on display through April 19, 2020
An exhibition by Imar Hutchins. Fusing together his prolific printmaking practice with his signature work as a collagist, Imar Hutchins has equipped himself to pass learned wisdom along to future generations by imprinting stories recorded in his family archives on the surfaces of his mixed media portraiture.
Imar Hutchins is an artist by birthright who has spent a lifetime collecting his inheritance. By amassing a collection of historic reference documents and tracing family histories towards their origins, he has equipped himself for the self-assigned task to pass learned wisdom along to future generations. His upcoming solo exhibition, titled Inheritance, fuses his prolific printmaking practice with his signature work as a collagist, imprinting stories recorded in his family archives onto the surfaces of his mixed media portraiture. Each portrait depicts a person of supreme significance, some directly related to Imar by blood and some adopted through a spiritual bond all for the collective benefit of building a unified human family. – Zoma Wallace, Curator, Inheritance
