Harkening back to his youth spent along the beaches of Miami, Simon Huelsbeck indulges his intuitive side to create expansive canvases filled with frolic, bikinis, pelicans and much more. He gives the viewer a sense of memories emerging and fading, fluctuating and aiming for closure, but lurking in a place of uncertainty and darkness. Come see the new work of one of Rochester’s most beloved painters.
