Beyond Pork Is an exhibition of paintings that venture into new territory for Hubner beyond the purely figurative. The artworks depict models holding, posing, with, and wrapped in raw cuts of pork. All paintings were created from photographs with live models and all meat used in the reference shoots was cooked and eaten by the artist.
Taking inspiration from artists Francis Bacon and Jenny Saville, Hubner combines their own signature stile of cool hues and expressive poss with surreal adornment of meat.Hubner's paintings are not meant to shock or offend but rather creative empathy for and with our relationship to meat.
Mid process of coming out of the series FoodArtCollection and Hubner decided to make a book about the whole entire process which has now just been published! Created and printed locally in Seattle by Girlie Press with a written essay from Amanda Manitach and edited by Dan Paulus.
