Building Bridges Art Exchange announces their upcoming solo exhibition Promising Skies by artist Walter Erra Hubert and curated by Marisa Caichiolo from February 26 to April 9, 2022, at Bergamot Station Arts Center (2525 Michigan Ave. Unit F2, Santa Monica). BBAX is open Tuesday to Friday (11 am–5 pm) and Saturday (noon–6 pm).
Walter Erra Hubert is a Pasadena-born, internationally recognized artist working in the mediums of acrylic paintings, mono prints, resin, and mixed media. Walter chose to self-isolate in 2018, two years before the international lockdown, resulting in his latest striking body of work Promising Skies, which reflects a world moving towards a new reality. The large-scale artworks are realized in acrylic, while the show will also feature his works that incorporate resin and mixed media. Walter’s expression is deeply influenced by the subconscious, a comparison that can be drawn to current events of the pandemic and post-pandemic era. The magic of nature and journeys of the spirit are at the core of Walter’s work.
Although the current global outlook may be bleak and unpredictable, Promising Skies reflects the world's moving towards a new reality with a sense of hope. In each translucent piece, an ocean of opportunities, portals, and evocative lights beckoning toward the future, representing the promise of new beginnings. Connecting to the past and creating a bridge to the future is the ideal path for Walter to engage with today’s collective consciousness. Explosions of light, volcanic eruptions, deep water currents and sensual feeling inspired by connections between the elements are among the bounty of natural phenomena that nourish his perspective and vision of the universal forces of Mother Earth.
