Mixed Media, Recycled Materials, Resin | 30"W x 40"H x 4"D | 2013
The Holy Book Series is a continuation of Huether’s interest in the exploration of light and color. The surface of each piece appears glazed, slick and very sophisticated. The artist immersed antique book pages in a crystal clear resin to achieve a glass-like sheen and transparency. Antique books, which were previously used and incorporated in an installation titled Word Up, were repurposed to become an essential part of this series.
In his endeavors to amplify the properties of light and bright color, Huether attempts to create a discourse on a medium that is meeting its demise. He continuously discovers new ways of experimenting with a variety of materials, combines them and ventures on.
