Gordon has been exploring different media to challenge both the concept and direction he has taken in the creation of his smaller-scale fine artworks. This personal and professional exploration has given insight to the myriad of ways he can express the beauty he sees. Using the seductive properties of richly saturated color, a wide array of natural and artificial light sources, luscious and diverse texture, found materials and quirky, sometimes unsettling imagery, his work offers viewers a complex intellectual experience.
His experience in the realm of large-scale artwork generated the confidence to fashion fine art pieces with very personal content. Huether started experimenting with salvaged materials, found objects and in contrast to these elements, items of polished and impeccable nature. While his core skills are in glass design, Huether also has extensive experience in working with many other media including steel, repurposing salvaged materials, resins and composite materials.
Until this day, much of his work is inspired by the effects nature has on man-made materials such as the rusty patterns present in deteriorating metal. These materials, translated into works of art, serve as a reminder of the temporal character of man’s achievements and the awe-inspiring forces of nature.
Huether’s work has been exhibited at museums and galleries, and collected across the United States, in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York.
Huether’s 15,000-square-foot studio, originally built by the Bishop Family in the 1980′s for use as a hay barn and later as a feed store, has undergone a 1.5 million dollar renovation in 2009. The hay barn now houses Gordon Huether’s design studio, project gallery, fabrication facilities, administrative offices and the Hay Barn Gallery, featuring a revolving exhibition of Gordon Huether’s fine art, as well as exhibiting the works of selected guest artists.
