If you haven’t noticed, Charleston is a happening city; from the seemingly constant stream of events to the ongoing construction and development, it’s sometimes hard to catch a breath. What often comes with expansion is, simply put, leftover material lying around. After moving to Los Angeles for three years, painter Tim Hussey is back with a bang with four six-by-six foot paintings. Aurem Terram, or “Ear to the Ground” is Hussey’s latest exhibit, in which he uses the leftover “stuff” to create something more meaningful. Hussey attempts to listen to Charleston through his art, and, rather than evading the sometimes hard-to-swallow past, he accepts it and encourages others to grow from it. Hussey is interested in painting ambiguous forms and using found materials.
