August 14, 2009, Richmond, VA . . . The solo show of painter Sterling Clinton Hundley debuts at Ghostprint Gallery on September 4, 2009.
Hundley’s new body of work, entitled [i]Emergent[/i], evolves from his noted career in illustration. His title derives from the scientific term emergent, referring to the process of complex systems that are composed of lesser parts.
Hundley’s creative process begins with a 3" x 3" monotype, which he then develops into a sequence of progressively larger and more complex works based on a grid of square panels. The new works use radically different techniques while further revealing Hundley’s intense skill as a conceptual image-maker. The images are suffused with his signature wit and layered meanings.
Says Hundley, “I navigate the gauntlet of abstraction to arrive just this side of representational.”
Hundley’s honors include three gold and two silver medals from the New York-based Society of Illustrators. In addition, from 2006-2008 , his work received more awards from his peers than any other illustrator in the U.S.
His clients have included Richmond Magazine, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, The New York Times, The L.A. Times, Atlantic Monthly, Entertainment Weekly, G Q, and The Washington Post as well as prominent theater companies. One of his paintings accompanied by an original story, has been reproduced on the final page of Virginia Living for several years.
Hundley is a Professor in the Department of Communication Arts at VCU in Richmond, Virginia and a core instructor at the Illustration Academy, which is currently held on the campus of Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida.
