Description: SteveHough(British, 21st Century)Harness, 2004color-shifting urethane on hand-carved plexiglass panelArtist label verso.

Provenance: Property of the Estate of Craig W Johnson.

Artist Statement:
"I am interested in the history and traditions of Post-Minimal reductive painting, and its content of aspiring toward the Sublime through formal considerations of presence and absence. Using this antecedent as a point of departure, I am seeking to reinvigorate the conventional flux of form and immateriality, by broadening the language of The Monochrome to incorporate aspects of the Postmodern that occupy the liminal space between authenticity and simulation; image and referent; uniqueness and ubiquity; reality and fantasy - toward notions of a Contemporary Sublime."

Ripples, varying in depth from thousands of an inch to one quarter of an inch, are hand-carved into a polymer-panel substrate. The ripples are sanded smooth and coated with automotive paint. After curing, the top-coat is wet-sanded and buffed to a glass-like finish

Steve Hough was born & raised in Liverpool, England. He received his B.A. from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London and has exhibited his work in New York, Los Angeles, Miami & Basel, Switzerland.29 3/4"H x 29 3/4"W.
