In 2024 it goes almost without saying that we all experience tremendous fragmentation at every level of our lived experience, but for some this is not necessarily something to lament. For a long time, artists have grappled with the effects of late modernism on everyday life. Recently, there’s been a noticeable trend in how artists confront and derive strength from this fragmentation. They harness the dissolution of narrative, identity, time, place, space, and meaning. Brian Hubble and Jose Guadalupe Sanchez III exemplify this approach in their work.
In both cases the artists’ handy work is as dazzling as it is confounding. Hubble reveals a deep commitment to the grit and labor of graphite and charcoal drawing practices as their material prima facie, showing both the patina of hard work and the perfection of the imperfect. Sanchez revels in the soft beauty of shapes and colors exquisitely calibrated and rendered in oil paint to unify his imagery.
The viewer swiftly resolves any visual dissonance caused by the overlapping imagery in his paintings. They find pure joy in the technical mastery evident in the application of paint. In the end fragmentation yields surprising visual rewards and the realm of personal insights becomes a form of luscious generosity for the viewer.
