Dave Huebner // Space Shuttle Challenger
Dave Huebner creates work as he travels the country in a rebuilt van outfitted with a darkroom, recording studio and a mini-drum kit. His new collection includes paintings of bygone artifacts from the 80’s and 90’s, as well as travel and surf photos. The show is comprised of paintings on wood panel including Celica—the coveted yet affordable sports car of the 90s, and Space Shuttle Challenger—the NASA disaster that would become Gen X's ‘JFK Moment’. Huebner’s photography, often made from a homemade kit, river water, and moonlight, document his excursions while on the road; seeing bands play, visiting abandoned homesteads, and the various people from his surfing trips. While humor is prevalent throughout the work, the collection as a whole exudes optimism and an unbound enthusiasm for the simple things in life.
