Ryan Hewett at UTA Artist Space

Unit London is excited to announce the opening of a new solo exhibition from South African artist, Ryan Hewett, taking place in Los Angeles with UTA Artist Space. Appearing as a natural progression from previous exhibitions, Hewett’s latest solo show is entitled H+, available to view from 7- 18 December. 

This new body of work exemplifies Hewett’s more streamlined artistic style of the last year, which smoothly combines detailed brushwork with planes of paint, thickly applied with a palette knife. H+ seeks to represent visually how today’s technologies might lead to radical improvements in human health and extended lifespans. Hewett’s exhibition presents a series of hybridised portraits, figurative works and landscapes that hover on the boundary between the human and what the artist defines as the humanoid. In line with these concepts, Hewett’s exhibition presents a series of hybridised portraits, figurative works and landscapes that hover on the boundary between the human and what the artist defines as the humanoid. By combining natural forms with geometric contours and straight lines, Hewett symbolises a trans-humanist outlook, merging the environment we live in and a possible futuristic society.
