It is with great pleasure that we introduce “Equus,” Patrick Dean Hubbell’s first solo show with Modern West Fine Art.
“My work is an investigation of identity. I am drawn to the subtle questioning of this examination. I find inspiration in
everything and I use various themes rooted in the correlation and the conflict of both my Native American and
contemporary mindset. I am equally interested in the abstract qualities of expression as well as representational imagery.
Using nature, stories, philosophies, and abstract representations, I am able to depict this existence of identity. My work
includes the use of bold and vibrant colors, combined with the integration of various elements of design, and a multitude
of line quality and expressive mark making that often mimics what nature provides. These elements allow me to create my
own aesthetic value in which reflect a personal experience of memory, physical, mental, and spiritual instances from life.
The expressive personality of my work allows the viewer a momentary visual experience.” – Patrick Hubbell
