Hubbard’s work encompasses video art, sculpture and painting, exploring the boundaries of each via a cross- examination that invigorates an array of media in new and inventive ways. In his painting practice, the artist brings together a range of industrial materials, such as resin, urethane, oil and wax, using traditional techniques to pour, pull and drip his media across the canvas, sometimes with the assistance of a squeegee. Fields of colour underlaid with industrial prints are interrupted with richly pooled, dripped and poured resin and oil paint. Working with fast- drying materials, Hubbard embraces chance happenings, revealing the autonomy of his chosen media. Nonetheless, compositional spontaneity is achieved through meticulous layering that results in unexpected formal and chemical combinations. His latest process involves UV printing technology that unites the languages of abstraction and figuration in a single canvas via underlying prints of machinery and everyday items.
