Hussey's "Constants 5"Tim Hussey's Archive will open this week, featuring his paintings and photographs.
Visit his Web site to get a feel for his work.
Opens at The Trusted Palate downtown on July 16 from 7-9 p.m. His work will be on view through Aug. 13.
Here's a bit about him from his Web site:
His fine art can be found in several books including Mark Murphy’s Dialogue, and Why? and Steve Heller’s Handwritten.
Tim moved from New York City, taking up residence in Santa Fe, Nashville and ultimately in his hometown of Charleston, SC.
Update August 1: Charleston City Paper went to the show, and rather liked it, saying in part:
Hussey's photographs are ripe with the whiff of risk, the scent of rebellion, and the rush of temptation. But they are more successful as traditional portraits that capture a certain sense of longing and isolation. Here, originality trumps replication, but the influence of modern media is not far behind. Yes, the females are attractive, the photos sexy. Yet the real treat lies in the manipulation of strength and vulnerability found in the models and in the photographer.
