Public Art: Sculpture; term
Gordon Huether Studio creates large-scale, site-specific art installations that are integrated into architecture and landscape for projects throughout the world. A majority of the work Huether designs is fabricated in-house, in Napa, California, by his team of craftsmen who are internationally recognized for their innovative, creative and highly professional artistry.
In contrast to his large-scale work, Gordon has been exploring different media to challenge both the concept and direction he has taken in the creation of his smaller-scale fine artworks. This personal and professional exploration has given insight to the myriad of ways he can express the beauty he sees. Using the seductive properties of richly saturated color, a wide array of natural and artificial light sources, luscious and diverse texture, found materials and quirky, sometimes unsettling imagery, his work offers viewers a complex intellectual experience.
Huether’s 15,000-square-foot studio, originally built by the Bishop Family in the 1980′s for use as a hay barn and later as a feed store, has recently undergone a 1.5 million dollar renovation. The studio houses Gordon Huether’s design studio, project gallery, fabrication facilities, administrative offices and the Hay Barn Gallery, featuring a revolving exhibition of Gordon Huether’s fine art, as well as exhibiting the works of selected guest artists.
