With ‘Above It All,’ Alec Huxley, 111 Minna mainstay and prolific Bay Area painter is back with a brand new series of otherworldly pieces featuring his classic surreal depictions of animals and space-gear-clad figures roaming in the least likely of places.
Alec Huxley (B. 1980) specializes in painting spacey dream states and wild animal encounters.
He is based in San Francisco, California.
Description of Huxley’s work from 111 Minna’s former curator Micah LeBrun:
“Alec Huxley anchors this body of work with his signature style of iconic and suit-clad figures which seem to be suspended between dimensions or speak to ones consciousness slipping from reality to that of a lucid dream all the while traveling through and viewing these scenarios through the lens of a vintage space helmet. Conceptually, Alec’s subjects seem to be sourced from historical Americana and subcultures that exude a renegade ambience when remembered, like the beatnik movement or the whisky runners of the prohibition era. His ability to seamlessly overlap conceptual ideas, create a similar illusion like that of a locomotive resting on the ocean floor” Follow them on Instagram:@alechuxley
