Alexandre Hogue: The Erosion Series

February 16, 2014 to June 15, 2014 | Focus I Gallery

Alexandre Hogue’s deep concern for environmental issues was a catalyst for the creation of a body of works that spanned the entirety of his career. The land-management failures that spawned the devastation of the dust-bowl decade of the 1930s became the impetus for some of the artist’s most powerful imagery—the Erosion series. Works such as the DMA’s own Drouth-Stricken Area served as an alarm to the public and an accusation and rebuke to powers that, through encouraging poor farming practices, had helped to produce the greatest agricultural disaster in American history. Alexandre Hogue: The Erosion Series presents the artist’s erosion works and supporting drawings for several of the paintings, allowing visitors to observe the evolution of Hogue’s creative process from conception to finish.
