Foundation Jump | Houska Gallery

Exhibition Dates: January 28th, 2022 – February 25th, 2022

The Houska Gallery would like to present their new solo exhibition, Foundation Jump, by Cory Sellers. His work will be on display until February 25th.

In Foundation Jump, Cory has been thinking about his immediate family and their development. The painted forms are symbolic in their placement, color, and usage. They represent many things that come to mind while painting including his family and the historical context of the forms. Cory is interested in the challenge of incorporating these forms into a visual language and building a strong composition. Certain features get manipulated or exaggerated using a variety of preliminary drawings both digital and traditional. This process continues until Cory feels the composition has developed its own characteristics, reminding him that the finished product does not have to look like the initial intention.
