Jennifer Kostuik Gallery presents New Paintings by Stephen Hutchings.
“Weather is always on our mind. Especially when the weather is “bad”, or nasty or ominous, like a heavy rain, strong winds, storm clouds, and thunder or black skies. Then the weather becomes an inconvenience, perhaps a challenge or even a threat. The term “pathetic fallacy” is used in art and literature to describe weather that mirrors our inner state. The paintings in this body of work all denote a weather event that can be associated with an emotion or subjective response. They serve not only as forecasts of the weather, but also as metaphors of our human condition”. – Stephen Hutchings, 2023
