“William Hundley” – Artwork by William Hundley

Be among the first to experience “William Hundley,” an exhibit that showcases the wide scope of mediums and wild inventiveness that Hundley taps into when creating his works.

About the Art:
William Hundley is an Austin-based multimedia artist. Although he is most widely known for his photography, Hundley’s work also includes sculptures and installation and has been exhibited across the U.S. and in Berlin. Recent works have focused on assembled collages and a series of tribal-inspired masks with the idea of gathering objects from contemporary culture and using them in a “tribal” way.  Of his artistic practice Hundley says, “My work started with the influence of Erwin Wurm and Maurizio Cattelan, these absurdists. I love the practical-joke nature of it; if I can make humor and beautiful aesthetics come together, that’s the biggest powerhouse I can imagine.”

On View: June 12 – July 16, 2013
Opening Reception: Wednesday, June 12, 2013, 6-9PM
Cost: Free admission. Light bites will be served at the artist opening reception, with drinks and all artwork available for purchase.

Exhibition organized by Olivia Junell. For more information, please visit http://williamhundley.com/
