FROM THE PRESS RELEASE:

Million Dollar Spit in the Ocean 

John Connelly Presents
Scott Hug
September 10 – October 24, 2009
625 W. 27th Street
New York, NY  10001

John Connelly Presents is pleased to announce Scott Hug’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, Million Dollar Spit in the Ocean. In this exhibition Hug continues his critical assessments of contemporary consumer culture through a process that dissects our obsessions with public opinion. These new works present us with a curious truth; we often rely on an abstract interpretation of data and surface images to construct our understanding of the world around us, forgoing personal experience.

The works in this exhibition are based on pie charts derived from information provided by Gallup.com polls, a popular method for determining current nation-wide sentiments and opinions.
