Darryl Hughto: From Diamonds to Sailboats
View Event Description ›
Forty-three years after his debut exhibition at the Everson, Darryl Hughto returns for a career-spanning show that examines the artist’s tireless interest in the power and possibility of a single shape: the diamond. Hughto began painting diamonds in 1973, developing several variations on the classic form, from diamonds inscribed on a rectangular canvas to square canvases turned on their point, becoming diamonds themselves. While the diamond never truly left his work, Hughto eventually explored other abstract styles until early 2016, when he rediscovered the diamond in the unfurled sails of boats as they floated across his canvas. This led to a new series of work featuring abstract, boldly colored sailboats set in dramatic seascapes. Presented side by side, the diamonds and sailboats illustrate the full circle of Hughto’s career.
