STUDIO - GALLERY
Mikee Huber is a Dayton, Ohio artist whose current artistic obsession is creating oil based multi-media abstract paintings. She refers to her abstracts as “Controlled Chaos”, finding that title fitting given the approach she takes using unique mediums and unconventional tools, as well as a reflection of the busy lives many of us live. She draws inspiration from scientific images she sees during her day job to create the organic looking paintings and enjoys reimagining the factual data into colorful realms of possibility. She often invites viewers to touch the glossy surfaces of her paintings and enjoys seeing their looks of amazement when the appearance belies the textures of the painted surfaces.
Born in the 1970s, Huber has a studio in the McCook Field Neighborhood where you can find her listening to disco, funk, and Michael Jackson’s music while she paints. She earned an Associates of Art in Fine Art, an Associate of Science in Commercial Art, and a Photography Certificate from Clark State Community College, in Springfield, OH. Huber has worked as a graphics designer supporting scientists and engineers for 23 years. Her art is in private collections in Dayton and Columbus, OH, Harrisburg, PA, Madison, IN, Clarksville, TN, Colorado Springs, CO, Houston, TX, Albuquerque, NM and Las Vegas, NV.
"Rivulets of silky, translucent color has covered the entire expanse of this ruminative piece by artist Mikee Huber. Its liquefied movement, leads the eyes into landscapes and pools of paint, and effortlessly blends dark and light into independent rivers of singularity. Huber’s non-conformist work, is wonderfully stimulating and authentic."
