Hebert’s quiet paintings may come across as mere representations. And yet these all-too-familiar items become new, strange, humorous, creepy, striking and, in a different way than already described, even moving.
This painting by Todd Hebert was in a recent exhibition at Devin Borden Gallery and got me thinking about making this list. The image has an unapologetically iconic American quality that speaks to me…in a southern accent.
