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.
