A show 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 reference 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 style of cool hues and expressive poses with surreal adornment of meat. Hubner's paintings are not meant to shock or offend but rather create empathy for and with our relationship to meat.
