For Brad Huck being raised in Colorado was a mix of bucolic suburbia, camping excursions and afternoons spent at the families' candy factory. These experiences have marked him with respect for the natural world and the belief that humble ingredients blended together with honest hands and creativity will yield more than a sum of their parts.
Upon completion of his degree from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver Colorado, Brad moved to Sonoma County California where he found inspiration in the works of Manuel Neri, Nathan Olivera, and other associated with the Bay Area Movement. Creating process driven mixed media panels, Brad hit his creative side while participating in invitational and juried shows throughout Northern California. Currently making Maui his home, the artist is intrigued with the islands' many micro-climates and has developed vast respect for the omnipresent ocean that surrounds him.
In 2011, Brad created a large scale painting titles "Awaii" for the exhibition "The Legacy of Land" held at Schaefer International Gallery. Acknowledgement of "Awaii" prompted an invitation to create a body of work based on the idea, "deconstructed landscape". The resulting collection of mixed media panels was exhibited on Oahu, at The Contemporary Museum the following year.
