On June 6th, Shawn Huckins’s newest body of work and solo exhibition, Staring at the Sun, will debut at Seattle’s Foster/White Gallery for their second show together. The exposition includes his latest exploration of the present through the lens of history, where an existing image of a classical masterpiece appears adjacent to an abbreviation excerpted from a social media post, text message, or other form of modern-day communication. Such a clash of traditions creates an intriguing opportunity to pose questions about the relationship of the works and the reason two such opposing elements were put together.
