Michael Hussar describes his work as "a voyeuristic snapshot of perceived humanity, complete with freaks and fakery; a gothic wonderland illuminating the gray area between truths and lies." His work is an attempt at unraveling a tightly woven series of knots. Knots that he believes we all possess. In trying to reveal something. It's about self discovery. Either that or perfecting alienation. What fuels his work are the people around him...friends, family, even strangers, and, historically speaking, the layers of humanity, the very human condition... and the tangled experiences that surround. Hussar works in oil usually on gessoed wood panels. Hussar's attachment to his paintings runs deep; each piece is a journal of sorts, allowing him to come face to face with his demons and exorcising them with each new stroke of the brush. Driven by love, hate, sin, redemption and death, Michael Hussar's oil paintings present the viewer with a contextual maturity that is both confrontational and evocative.
