Artist HUEMAN Takes us “Between the Lines” of her Style in Highly-Anticipated Solo Exhibit at Project Gallery

Opening June 5, 2014 | 7pm
Project Gallery
1553 N. Cahuenga Blvd.
Hollywood, CA 90028

For the past year, HUEMAN has been doing non-stop high-profile projects, including a painting commissioned by NIKE, a mural for P. Diddy’s Revolt TV Studios, and her biggest canvas to date: a 90-foot wall in San Francisco at the Ian Ross Gallery. Now she’s taking it back to the gallery walls in a new solo exhibit opening June 5, 2014 at Project Gallery. “Between the Lines,” will premiere more than 12 new pieces on canvas and wood. Project Gallery is located at 1553 N. Cahuenga Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90028.

“Between the Lines” is a play on the artist’s signature style as well as the theme of her new collection of work. A freestyler to the core, HUEMAN has been perfecting a technique of creating free-flowing abstract shapes, finding faces within their framework and then introducing sharp lines to create structure and dimension.

HUEMAN says, “When people look at art, sometimes they look for things that may or may not be there. With [Between the Lines] I want to talk about human behavior and the tendency to place meaning and significance in what we see. I want to examine the not-so obvious: subtexts, innuendos, and the things that go unsaid. I want viewers to literally read between the lines.”Known for her vivid colors and surreal images, HUEMAN’s work is definitely easy to get lost in. For this series, she’s also been branching out beyond the stunning portraiture that’s become her signature with more abstract imagery.

Because her process is so spontaneous it’s hard to believe we’re not getting some glimpse, even if by accident, into the artist’s subconscious. HUEMAN admits that meaning might not be as contrived as it seems. “All the work I do is definitely a snapshot of what I was going through or thinking about when I made it. And yes, sometimes I do get new insight into my life when I step back and look at some of my past projects.”

“Between the Lines” will run from June 5, 2014 until July 20th.

I was recently commissioned by Nike to create a surreal piece inspired by Kobe and his 81-point game as part of their Kobe Prelude Experience exhibit at the Nike Vault at the Staples Center. Here’s the link to my interview with Complex about the piece.

For a city that’s infatuated with its murals, it’s been dishing out a lot of tough love.

Mural leaders and artists were ready to rally for city council to vote for the proposed mural ordinance Tuesday. On Monday morning the vote was delayed for Friday’s city council meeting [Edit: The vote is now scheduled for Wednesday, August 28].

My Summer 2013 Recap

‘Ritual’ Solo Show Recap

One of my favorite things to do is pick the brains of talented people I admire.. I was doing quite a bit of that this year, and every time there was an exchange of creative ideas, I’d leave feeling crazy inspired, especially when visiting their homes or studios. I’ve always been fascinated with the way people live. What things they decide to buy, how they take care of themselves. How they get motivated. Their behaviors, their habits, their everyday rituals. More specifically, I became obsessed with the daily lives of other creative huemans (and I say that in the most non-creepy way possible!). Every artist has their own way of approaching the creative process. I wanted to hear their stories. How and why did they get into the arts? What do they need to do to get into creative mode? What tools do they use, and why?
