① Artwork:

Part A and Part B

This is a photograph of a brown sculpture depicting forms that suggest the human body. This photo is part of a series by the artist that features theatrical constructions made from a variety of everyday materials and objects, including: reflective metallic fabrics, tin foil and paper cutouts. The materials in these works are folded, tucked, taped, pinned and draped by the artist and then lit for dramatic effect. In some of the compositions, the connection between the material and the interplay of light and shadow suggests makeshift, imperfect and even humorous substitutes for the seamless backdrops traditionally employed in studio photography.

Taking strong cues from feminist discourse, Hubbs's formal and narrative photographs employ a language of image-making that brings together elements of performance and sculpture. The artist's work explores the way a photograph can be a container for atmosphere, and how this relationship has evolved over time—both conceptually and in terms of technique.
