We’re proud to announce the recent acquisition of push pull, Hugo McCloud’s beautiful mixed-media work from 2019. The California artist uses commonplace and industrial materials–scraps of metal, roofing paper, tar and, most recently, plastic bags. McCloud uses traditional printing and painting techniques with found materials to create distinctly textured abstract canvases.
