Houzenga’s story as a painter starts with an asteroid that landed at his feet – A red velvet book full of pictures from the 1890’s which he found in someones trash while out for a jog in 2006. This new body of work builds upon almost a decade of painting and experimentation with spray paint, stencils, tape, and found objects and marks another milestone is Houzenga’s creative evolution and career. The show will feature the entire “Integrating The Shadow” series as well as other current works never before seen by the public.
In a simple experiment a number of these paintings were completed using the artists left hand – training a part of the brain that is seldom used and integrating parts of the artists unconscious mind.
