Alex Hubbard’s videos involve carefully choreographed and dynamically composed studio experiments with objects, paint, construction, and deconstruction. Hubbard is a Los Angeles- based artist whose work encompasses video art and painting, exploring the boundaries of each via a cross-examination that invigorated both media in new and inventive ways. Avoiding a single point of focus, Hubbard constructs his videos in layers, engulfing the viewer with bold colors, performative gestures, and evolving compositions in which movement is multi-directional and time appears to be non-linear. Often described as “moving painting,” the videos are a record of physical creation and  destruction, with the hand of the artist tangible, and sometimes visible, in the frame.
