Buster Graybill: Progeny of Tush Hog
November 20, 2011–February 19, 2012
Progeny of Tush Hog will be an ambitious indoor and outdoor exhibition of sculptures, photographs, and video by San Antonio artist Buster Graybill that explores the way urbanization interacts and collides with the natural world.
The southern colloquial term “tush hog” is a name for a tusked feral hog, and sometimes for tough people who behave like them. Graybill’s Tush Hog is a breed of sculptures that retains some Minimalist formal traits while also functioning as wild game feeders. It is as if the contemporary aesthetics of a Donald Judd sculpture escaped Marfa, TX and crossbred with the rural functionality of a deer feeder in the nearby rural landscape. Shiny metal hybrid offspring, Tush Hogs, were left alone in the wilderness without curators and conservators to care for them. Their rugged diamond-plated armor belongs in a pick-up truck bed, rather than an art gallery. Muscular geometric shapes endure the attacks of wild hogs, deer, rams, critters and critics looking for some casual target practice. Like the animals they encounter, migrating through rural, suburban, and urban areas, the Tush Hogs remain in a state of constant adaptation as they search for a more hospitable habitat.
