DAVID HYTONE – IF NOT FOR THE PANTOMIME VENTRILOQUIST
Inaugural Exhibition | Friesen+Lantz

A finalist for the 2018 Neddy Award in Painting, David Hytone is a Seattle based artist with a theatrical background. The artist’s dimensional mixed media works examine human frailty and the mechanisms that we employ to compensate for our limitations – imagined and otherwise.
Using themes of theatre and still-life, Hytone explores the space between the veneers of projection, facade and the actuality of things.

“We are nearly always ‘pretending’, nearly always onstage, projecting a version of ourselves to the world, askew with the inner self,” says Hytone. “My studio practice has long provided a conduit into inquiries about the relationship between identity and memory, and the impact that relationship has on the way we perceive the world around us and how we perceive ourselves. I’ve often said that when I enter the studio, I do not so much begin with an idea as endeavor to arrive at one, and allowing the process to lead my inquiries, as opposed to those inquiries driving my process is integral to keeping the work honest, revelatory and moving forward.”
