Portraiture, and the symbolic geometry of the face and head, is one of Hueller’s central preoccupations. My portrait in the year 2080 (2007) is both whimsical and dark with its nebulous combination of filled in and empty spaces, its squiggly hairs and wrinkles, blackened teeth and nervous crosshatching. Its ostensive self-caricature sets up a dialogue with the imperfection and intimacy of outsider and avant-garde paper-based art. This visual thread is continued in the raw doodling and associative, prism-like compositions of Puppetmaster, Wohin-Sehen, Rauch Im Aug, Elegy, and Untitled (Haupt) (all 2009).
