Nathan Hufford: Outside the Lines
July – August 2023
“Remember when they told us to color inside the lines?
Well, I stopped listening one day. I started putting shapes outside the canvas walls so that the drawings were set free from the two-dimensional surface and could stretch into the three-dimensional world. From a specific vantage point the shapes still create a simple cohesive drawing, but as you move throughout the space the drawings break apart and become an animated abstraction.
Technically, I’m still coloring inside the lines. I’ve just redefined where the lines are drawn.”
Nathan received his BFA in Drawing and Painting from Ohio State University and now resides in Pittsburgh, PA. He is an alumni of Radiant Hall, Lawrenceville and is currently a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh and participated in their 106th exhibition.
