PORTLAND, Ore. - Dec. 29, 2015 - PRLog -- Steel Door Gallery is proud to bring “Orden - Desorden”, A solo exhibition featuring the abstract work of ink master tattoo artist Joshua Hibbard. “Orden - Desorden” examines the chaotic environment where Nature’s effects, like gravity and velocity, have more of an impact on the image than Hibbard's own consciousness and thoughts. Hibbard strives to feel a connection with Nature’s beauty and chaos in determining the outcome of his paintings. "You can take the human out of the Earth but you can’t take the Earth out of the human. We are the Earth," says Hibbard “I hope to bring awareness to the beauty that surrounds us every day so that people can take time appreciate Nature and all of the ways it inspires creativity, humility and awe.”

As part of the excitement and to entice people to get outside, in the four weeks leading up to the show Joshua and Steel Door Gallery will be placing an original Hibbard painting secretly around the downtown Portland area. Steel Door Gallery will be using its Facebook and Twitter pages to guide potential owners to Hibbard's lost paintings through a series of clues. The first person to claim the painting gets to keep it.

Hibbard began painting as a creative outlet for dealing with the trials and tribulations resulting from childhood. By the age of twelve he was doing live realistic portraits at community events. By sixteen he was commissioning impressive ultra-realistic portraits for the staff of his high school. During his time in the U.S. Navy he was introduced to tattooing as an art form. After years of success in this incredibly technical field, Hibbard is breaking free from the the traditional constraints of realism. His abstract work allows him to travel a new path of discovery. “Orden - Desorden” is the first exhibition of Hibbard’s abstract work. “I am honored to be showing Joshua's new work,” stated Steel Door Gallery owner Patrick Zahn. “Part of the gallery's mission is to give art collectors the opportunity to engage with emerging artists early in their career, providing a unique opportunity for investment.

The exhibition opens January 16th and runs through January 31, 2016. A reception for both the artists and the public will be held Saturday January 16 at 6:00pm Pacific Time. Joshua Hibbard will be present and available to discuss his work. 100 limited-edition signed prints will be given to the first 100 people to enter the exhibition on opening night. Additionally, Steel Door Gallery and Hibbard have agreed to donate twenty percent to of all sales generated during the two week exhibition to New Avenues For Youth. Refreshments will be served.
