David Hytone: The Armchair Librettist
Linda Hodges Gallery, Seattle, WA - Nov 7 – 30
For his second solo exhibition at Linda Hodges, David Hytone brings startlingly large new abstractions. The clotted, jammed and crowded compositions inform paintings that are thoroughly original, complex and often di cult to unravel. This is why people continue to look at them. Colorful, with spatially shifting and ambiguously identifiable shapes, the pictures may have been infl uenced by a year Hytone spent at Osaka University of Arts. He has been in important group shows in Oklahoma, Iowa and Germany.
