Kodachromes from San Francisco 1980-1990 by Chuck Hudina

Posted March 15th, 2015 in Announcements, News / Events

Bright colors, dark shadows, and stark lines are the accessories that make up long time Canyon Cinema filmmaker Chuck Hudina’s portraits of San Francisco in the 1980s. These portraits, through their abstractions of the city they re-present, alert to the affects of a stroll through San Francisco in the light and shade of the California sun. CITY COLOR provides viewers with a record of “what is unsympathetically without comment, ” reporting reality in all its “beauty and decay.” The artist himself sums this up perfectly in his brief but apt statement on his project, which he describes as:

COLOR AS FORM

COLOR AS SUBJECT

COLOR AS A CITY UNDER THE CALIFORNIA LIGHT
