Wesley Harvey: Pretty Hurts
March 2, 2017 6:00 pm - March 18, 2017 9:00 pm
Hello Studio is pleased to present Wesley Harvey’s most recent body of work, Pretty Hurts. Harvey, a former San Antonio resident, continues his investigation into Queer Theory, examining the ideas of deviance and perfection associated with homosexuality. “Perfection, at least in terms of being a gay man, has become quite the disease. Perfection is sought after no matter what the cost or consequences. I want to address the social and cultural differences of being gay and examine not only the normative behavior but also the deviant lifestyle that often gets neglected and chastised.”
Harvey will present a new body of functional and sculptural ceramics, as well as works on paper.
Pretty Hurts is on view March 2 – March 18.
