Glimmer Fouroil on linen28” x 22”2014
This selection of paintings and drawings are portraits of characters in my ongoing myths. One by one I’m revealing them, stripped down and removed from their surroundings that contain myriad histories and meanings. This gave me a chance to further explore and connect with them as characters for future paintings that will be elaborate in setting and detail as well as epic in scale. This is by no means the full cast of characters but they are certainly some of my favorite.

In Recovery
Video, scanned photographs manipulated using GoldMosh software
2013

In 2006, my father Kevin Hovet suffered a stroke at the age of forty-three. Although he was not diagnosed to recover, today he is healthy but retains moderate short-term memory loss. By combining processes of digital manipulation and the re-structuring of found footage, this cycle of experimental videos explores the impulse to gain control over an uncontrollable event and how images decay as much as memories.

I capture and orchestrate artifacts of natural phenomena. I am compelled to work large. I want to invite the viewer to become immersed in my ethereal spaces. The best way to document your work is outside with natural lighting!
