James Hyde incorporates a range of materials into his abstract paintings, from unfinished 2 x 4s to velvet and Styrofoam blocks. He fashions these materials into paintings as giant pillows, chunky frescos and abstractions inhabiting photographic views. Saturated and playful, the pieces wryly reference Minimalism, Abstract Expressionism and color field painting. Three writers discuss aspects of his work.
