In his latest body of work, Staring at the Sun, Shawn explores our times through the lens of history, responding to the current political landscape. “People on both sides of the political spectrum can be blinded by their core beliefs, and oppose any common ground,” says Huckins of his new work.
It follows on from his Fool’s Gold series in 2018 where he replicated works by Stewart and Bierstadt, Charles Wilson Peale and William Merritt Chase. “In an era where the internet makes everyone a publisher, and digital editing tools bestow the power to create realities out of pixels, these works examine our assumptions regarding the longevity of individual influence and institutions,” Huckins adds.
Staring at the Sun is his latest solo exhibition, launching 6 June at the Foster/White Gallery in Seattle. Discover more of his work at shawnhuckins.com.
