“The Last Resort”

September 2 - October 15

colorful painting - Slurpies in Paradise artist Kristin Hough

Artist: Kristin Hough

Reception: September 22, 2021, 5 pm
Artist Talk: 5:30 pm

Kristin Hough is an artist, educator, and curator newly based in Reno, Nevada. The paintings in The Last Resort reference tourist destinations, and pull imagery from strangers’ reviews on websites like TripAdvisor and Yelp. They oscillate between awe and cynicism, with frenetic mark-making and multiple narratives guiding the composition. The characters smear mud on their faces and drink beer while wading through foggy waters, as the paintings revel in confusion, bright colors and alien landscapes.
