About the exhibition:
The Spoils is a body of work that analyzes the validity of legend from the point of view of the vanquished, not the history drafted by the victor. The Spoils of Saint Hubris is a reinterpretation of the story of Saint Hubert, the patron saint of the animals and hunters. Legend tells that while hunting on Easter Sunday, Saint Hubert came upon God in the clearing, in the form of the white stag of Arthurian legend. Falling to his knees and vowing to give up his worldly goods, Hubert was blessed by God and later anointed the Patron Saint of animals and hunters by the Catholic Church.
The Spoils of Saint Hubris tells another truth. Hubris chooses to take God as the ultimate trophy. The paintings included are from a larger body of work that speaks of apathy, loyalty and the consequences of man’s unending ambition and need to control that which should not be culled. Through the combination of traditional oil painting techniques and the geometry of digital art and screen printing, this The Spoils of Saint Hubris speaks to the clashing of science and nature; the precise and the organic.
Sterling Hundley is an icon and a recognized advocate in his field.
