Drawing, Painting, and Installation


Nathan Huff earned his M.F.A. in Drawing and Painting, from California State University Long Beach, and also studied at Watts Atelier School of Art. Huff creates drawing and painting installations that function as freewheeling narratives: personal stories that explore the gaps between visual perception and modes of representation. He says, “In my studio practice I leave space for interpretive play and experimentation. My work initially takes the forms of gouache drawings; sculpture made from altered found furniture, creative writing, and enacted dialogue, an Internet search and collage, or colliding personal mythology with actual objects.” Huff’s solo museum and gallery exhibitions have been featured at UCR Culver and Sweeney Galleries (Riverside), Los Angeles at D.E.N. Contemporary (West Hollywood), New Media Gallery (Ventura), Minthorne Gallery, (Oregon), and Gallerie View (Salambo, Tunisia.) His works are in the Permanent Collections of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Culver Museum, the Hilbert Museum of California Art, Ridley Tree Museum of Art, and Cal State University Long Beach, and he is represented by Sullivan Goss Gallery.
