Actuality is when the lighthouse is dark between flashes: it it’s the instant between the ticks of the watch: it is a void interval slipping forever through time: the rupture between past and future: the gap at the poles of the revolving magnetic field, infinitesimally small but ultimately real. It is the inter-chronic pause when nothing is happening. It is the void between events.
–George Kubler, The Shape of Time

Exploring geometry and repetition, Huebler makes use of luminous color to develop visual structures of continuity and expanse. Connecting the speculative space of drawing, painting, and the physical properties of pigments, fluidity, and gravity, the works in MATERIAL REAL explore ‘the infinite limits of things’. A grid, in its simplest form, creates a lattice for the ‘blooming, buzzing’ space of sense perception, with all its limitations and potentialities. Often working in series, with clear constraints and an internal logic– at times contradicted– Huebler pursues the nuance of materials and a preoccupation with unbounded color. Points of correspondence with fashion, textile design, the direction and movement of geological strata and fabric’s geometrical structure, and elements of popular culture enter into a dialogue with an intuitive color process. Ultimately, radiant color and the open, silent, space of abstraction with its ineffable calm, provide the perfect vehicle to alter the register of seeing and extend our perceptual interface with the world.
