EK Huckaby at {Poem88}

EK Huckaby brings his inimitable paintings and assemblages back to {Poem88} for his second solo exhibition, “The Ocean Casts the Greatest Shadow.”

Working from found images from out-of-print tomes of Near Eastern travel, the behavior of honey-bees, and 19th century inventions, Huckaby gives a glimpse into the mysteries and travails of early modernity.

In his carefully translucent images, Huckaby congeals extinct animals, light bulbs, and fruit markets, alike, in his home-made concoctions of Old World glazes. Huckaby, whose career enters its third decade, persists in exploring the possibilities of painting to evoke hidden worlds and poetic interpretation.

Huckaby’s work is included in important museum and private collections including, locally, The High Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art- Georgia (MOCA-GA).
