    Love to Hate is an installation of oil paintings by emerging artist, Dylan Humphreys ('13).

    Severity and disfiguration purveys this series of works. The final pictures become caustic; interrogating conditions related to painting and living at the moment. Stylized through histories of cartoon and expressive art, the location of the Gam Gallery and Studio, where Humphreys works, has also augmented material aspects of the artist's sketchy and hyperactive aesthetic.
