Elliott Hundley’s collaged wall works and sculptures, assembled from found materials: bamboo, string, paper, photographs, magazine clippings, plastic, and foam, loosely jumble together narrative bits and scraps of information. Hundley’s choice of found, often ephemeral objects embeds each work with sentimentality and personal meaning, but these small-scale details are at times suggestive of more universal imagery and ideas: mythology, forces of nature, and aerial views of vast and fantastic landscapes. Elliott Hundley earned an MFA at the University of California, Los Angeles (2005), a BFA in printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design (1997) and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2002). His solo project Hyacinth was realized at the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Culture Center, Los Angeles (2006), and a solo exhibition was held at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York (2007). Selected group exhibitions includeUSA Today: New American Art from the Saatchi Gallery Royal Academy of Arts, London (2006); Chain Letter High Energy Constructs, Los Angeles (2006); LAXed: Paintings from the Other Side Peres Projects, Berlin (2006); and Desired Constellations Daniel Reich Gallery, New York (2005). Hundley currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
