Visiting With EK Huckaby
A Georgia native with deep family roots, EK welcomed us into his home and studio during a recent ARTmerge.
When you first walk into his home you are greeted by two deliciously long and high and fully stocked book shelves. The top shelf purposefully holds items just out of reach and seem to provide a bit of an analogy for EK's work. His layers hold your attention because you know there is something, you can feel there is something, just beyond the reach of your eye.
Victorian and Renaissance themes are present everywhere you look, even down to the hand made varnishes whose amber colors fill the mason jars that line the studio shelves.
In every nook and cranny inspiration captures your eye, and adds another layer of story to Huckaby's work. A quick look through the bookshelves brings us to a collection of anatomy manuals he inherited from his great-grandfather.
History and story are found everywhere and Anhydjinnic Molassicism has merged them in a beautiful and haunting way.
To learn more about Anhydjinnic Molassicism from EK Huckaby, join us at MOCAga on Tuesday, October 14th for and Artist Talk.
7pm Talk Begins
