Alter Deus::Christoph Hueppi

March 28th – May 3rd

Opening Reception March 28th 6-9pm

galleryHOMELAND is pleased to announce Zurich Artist in Residence Christoph Hueppi for his first trip and solo show to Houston Texas. Hueppi marks galleryHOMELAND’s fourth visiting artist to Houston and the first at our newest location.  Hueppi will be residing in Houston for the duration of his 5 week exhibition and working closely with galleryHOMELAND and our many outstanding institutions, curators, and local artists.

Hueppi’s latest body of work dives deep into the realm and odd mysteries of microscopic organisms, molecular sciences, and developing technologies.  Through his paintings, Hueppi’s extreme techniques and loud color palette creates a series of hypnotic imagery and visual vastness.  His newest body of work focuses on the strange visual clues used in new scientific developments.  Working with surgeon like exacts and precisions, his painting style often times mimics the digital and computer realm of scientific realizations.  Focusing on the ideas of bacteria, viruses, cell structure, and microscopic discoveries, Hueppi’s paintings takes a new spin on the unseen. Through his own hand and vision Hueppi beautifully recreates these ideas and progresses through the use of loud colors, fine line work, and a variety of process.

Traditionally trained in painting, Christoph Hueppi received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  Living and working in Zurich, Switzerland he has since been represented and exhibited in Museums, Kuntshalles, galleries, and collections around the globe.  His works have been presented in Berlin, Basel, London, Mumbai, Austria, and Portland and continued to be widely received and collected.  Now in Houston, galleryHOMELAND is proud to exhibit this compelling body of work.  This exhibition will be accompanied by a 5 week residency, lecture, panel discussion, and side projects at galleryHOMELAND and throughout Houston.

Please join us Saturday March 28th, 2015 6-9pm for the opening reception and exhibition of Christoph Hueppi            gallery hours: Friday and Saturday 12-5pm
