Artist Alexandre Hogue as “Environmentalist”

Alexandre Hogue, whose works are currently on display at the Rockwell, explored environmentalism through his art, well before it was the popular thing to do. His love of nature inspired him to critically examine the effects of man on the natural landscape. In the video below, Susan Kalil, co-curator of the Rockwell’s exhibition Alexandre Hogue: An American Visionary – Paintings and Works on Paper, discusses Hogue’s fascination with nature and the background that led him to explore environmental topics in his work.
