ALEX HUBBARD — THE CORNER OF THE TABLE

The videos involve a long, slow process, hunched in front of the computer… The paintings, when they started, were about changing gears in the studio and working quickly… With most if not all of the materials I use, there is no going back. With the plastics, the urethanes, and the resins, once they are mixed, the clock is ticking. The slower I am to start, the less time I have to work with them.Alex Hubbard*

THE CORNER OF THE TABLE—Hubbard’s solo show at Regen Projects—includes his new multimedia works on linen and cotton as well as two handmade projectors streaming animated videos.
