Jared Haug: Ice Cubes

February 3 through March 31, 2017

Jared Haug: Ice Cubes is a series of acrylic paintings in which the artist investigates how properties of ice and its melting point can be translated by paint. Haug dilutes acrylic paint with water, then freezes and places it on the canvas to leave its imprint as it melts, creating abstract fields punctuated by the pigmented residue of where ice once existed. In their cool tranquility, Haug’s paintings evoke the loss of natural forms via human manipulation. More about the artist and his full body of work can be found here.
