Opening TONIGHT

4:00 – 8:00 pm

Opening tonight at Boesky West in Aspen is an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist John Houck. The exhibition marks an important shift for the artist as he more deeply embraces painting as part of his photography practice, furthering the compositional complexity of his work. Houck's compositions merge the real and imagined, confounding the viewer's expectation of the photograph as a medium of true-to-life representation and instead undulating between structure and play, rationality and emotion, and personal reference and invented moment. Titled Tenth Mountain, a reference to the Tenth Mountain Division of the United States Army of which his grandfather was a part, the show also emphasizes the ongoing importance of personal narratives to Houck’s creative process.
