Brian Huber

Sausalito, CA

Brian's work is based on the abstraction of landscapes, architectural elements and the impact of man on the natural world. Raised in New Orleans, Brian was influenced not only by an unconstrained culture and the rhythmic motions of blues and jazz, but also an environment where hurricanes change everything. Brian transforms landscapes and manmade forms into something new. His pieces represent physical changes on a grand scale - anything from the construction of a beautiful building to the devastation of a man-made disaster. Brian cuts and manipulates giant sheets of acrylic paint to create the sculptural texture of his pieces. The constant change of light and shadow alters the color and pattern of his creations. The Circle Back Series plays with light and shadow on wrought ironwork found throughout New Orleans. An abstracted interpretation of the braided rivers and glacial moraines of the Denali Alaska landscape is the focus of Braided. Two new series "Circumference" and "Shards" will be shown at MOS this year.

Brian Huber was raised in New Orleans in a house full of art and artists. His earliest creative influences were his mother Janeth Murray and aunt Lynne Gleason – both successful artists. Part of the creative gumbo was his grandmother Sculptor Rai Murray. A music filled studio, the smell of fresh paint and piles of paintings to name are fond memories of the time at home. Brian studied Art and Architecture at the University of Louisiana.

He spent numerous years designing and orchestrating events for major television studios and corporations. For five years Brian split his time between New Orleans and San Francisco. After a few years in the city he moved to the eclectic houseboat community in Sausalito. He now lives with his wife in Marin County and is grateful to have more time in the studio.
