James Huckenpahler is an artist who works primarily digitally, embracing processes that allow something wholly overlooked and uncalled for to emerge. From fairly simple abstract structures—essentially based on sets of simple rules or instructions—rich images unfold.
His work is represented in Washington DC by Hemphill Fine Arts. He is a member of FURTHERMORE, a research and development lab for visual culture. He is a fellow of Provisions Research Library, and currently serves on the advisory board of Transformer, non-profit, artist-centered organization that connects and promotes emerging artists locally, nationally and internationally.
