A Conversation with the Artists: Hunger & Huncilman
March 3, 2018, stop by any time between 1 and 4 pm

events are free and open to the public


The work of artists Darrell Hunger & Stan Huncilman share an approach to assemblage involving fragmented & formally re-assembled objects and materials. The use of found & discarded objects as sculpture is a common & distinctive strategy for Bay Area Artists. But Hunger & Huncilman differ from this in their shared affinity for high color & a kind of tidiness in the construction. The results are lively abstractions infused with humor.

Darrel Hunger’s work explores chaos & metamorphosis. His processes seem to suggest ways of making sense of life’s complexities and struggles. As he says about his work in this exhibit, “The process explores attachment, change and the illusion of completion. The contentment of finishing is only overcome by the possibly of creating something better out of the fragments. Change is constant, newness is the outcome.”
