Elliott Hundley is a painter and sculptor whose work contemplates shifting perspective using fractured vignettes—reimagining structure in his compositions. Pulling visual references from Greek mythology and Japanese woodblock prints, the artist stages improvisational photo-shoots with friends and family as a basis for multi-panel and large-scale tableaus. His southern heritage can be found in both his photographs and three-dimensional paintings. Hundley repurposes items from older works, found objects from the studio, and cut-up ephemera to contribute texture to his works. These dreamy assemblages target formal concerns of still life, landscape, and portraiture in hopes of imbuing the medium with a novel and mystical essence.
Hundley’s work has been exhibited at institutions including Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, International Center of Photography, New York, Louisiana Museum, Humlebaek, Denmark, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California, Weatherspoon Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina, New Museum, New York, Guggenheim Museum, New York, and Saatchi Gallery, London, among others.
