Sean Kelly Gallery said today that it now represents Brooklyn-based artist Hugo McCloud, whose first solo show there opens on January 29. McCloud was included in a summer group show at Sean Kelly, and the gallery brought his work to Art Basel Miami Beach in December.

The gallery described his process like this: “McCloud works on tarpaper instead of canvas, enveloping it in layers of liquid tar, foil and aluminum roof coating. The surfaces are prepared on the floor, torched, painted, hammered and stamped[.]” His solo show will include 11 new works. He had his first New York solo show last year at Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld’s gallery on the Upper East Side.
