                                                                       Having purchased a home in Hudson last November, Isidro Blasco has invited 14 artists to apply their ideas to this structure before he begins the renovation.  We are investigating how the architectural elements of a

                                                           house might turn out differently from what is generally accepted as normal. We are implicitly rejecting the status quo of the standardized home, where decisions are based on economical or aesthetic factors and not

                                                           through real perceptions of space and emotions. We look for a new path. An outcome more connected to contemporary inhabitants and users of a home. In doing so, familiar outcomes may find other solutions.

FRG OBJECTS & DESIGN / ART is pleased to announce the opening ofCOMPOSITIONS the Hudson debut exhibition of abstract painter DREW BOUGHTON. 
Among the seemingly endless number of talented artists relocating to the Hudson Valley there is DREW BOUGHTON. Mr. Boughton, a recent Hudson, NY resident, arrived via Toronto from Los Angeles where he has worked in the theatre and film industry for many years. His experience with the stage and big screen as art director and production designer informs his painting with an uncommon power in scale and movement. An eye trained in producing big statements is apparent in the calculated risk Boughton takes in his vibrant color and black and white paintings. 

His compositions in thick acrylic on canvas express moments of bold contrast in broad strokes and sheer layers of pigment. One can sense the struggle of the background and foreground environment in a dynamic battle for primacy. Vigorous application of the medium creates a "focused recklessness", simple yet complex. This certainly is not shy or pretty work. 
BOUGHTON'S paintings demand attention, inviting speculation on when each swath of paint was applied and why. His canvases capture the eye with something familiar yet unseen.
