Jeremy Hush is a prolific artist who has been creating illustrations for the punk and heavy metal music scenes for many years. Mix this with his love for animals and attraction to storytelling, Hush’s work evinces a wonderful balance of masculine and feminine, his dark aesthetics setting off gentle linework and shading. His works are heavy with symbolism, but the meanings behind his symbols are personal. An extremely warm and generous man, he rarely shares these meanings with anyone.
A sequential illustration graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design (BFA 1997) Hush’s work has started to gain attention from the Pop Surreal world. His most recent CD design for metal band U. S. Christmas is also bringing him a lot of new international attention.
Hush is heavily influenced by Arthur Rackham and other 19th century illustrations. His spidery drawings are dark and mysterious, but, like Rackham’s drawings, evoke the fear, love and awe one might have for nature and her power.
Hush prefers using ball point pen (many of which he’s found in hotels from around the world), and experiments with a plethora of other media such as coffee, for example. Also unique is his way of using his fingerprints to shade. The swirly patterns of his skin create a unique and expertly blended cross-hatch-like texture in the shadows of his art.
The title he chose for his upcoming solo exhibit, A Curious Commotion, refers to the mystery of what’s in store. You can hear that something’s coming (a loud rustling in the trees or some indiscernible movement up ahead in your path), but you don’t know what or who it is, nor can you know if you are safe or in danger.
Please join us for the opening on Friday, March 4, 7-10pm at the White Rabbit Lounge located at 145 East Houston Street, between Forsyth and Eldridge. DJ Mz. Margo will be spinning tunes while our bartender keeps the libations flowing.
