Elliott Hundley’s inspiration is rooted in ancient texts, literature, and classical mythology merging with contemporary forms to create operatic and kaleidoscopic works of art. He is known for innovations in collage and assemblage over a multitude of mediums including sculpture, painting, drawing, and photography. His works on canvas are an accumulation of found materials in dialogue with figurative and text fragments. These elements, affixed using fabric pins, are meticulously organized to be viewed upon close inspection and at a distance as dynamic abstractions of form and color.
Hundley holds an MFA from the University of California and a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. Hundley’s work is included in significant international public collections including The Broad, Los Angeles, CA; DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, Turkey; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, TX; Pérez Art Museum Miami, FL; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY.
