"Color of Money" Continues the Series Trilogy Anguish and Obsession at huZ galleries

By Sean Evans

Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 1/5/18 – “Color of Money” is a solo exhibition featuring the photography of Huss Hardan. It is one third of a trilogy entitled Anguish and Obsession. The trilogy was created in 2016. “Color of Money” is the second series of this emotionally charged project.


“An American Love Story” was the first series to be exhibited. “Mother Earth” is the name of the final and third exhibition. Keep an eye out for this next series opening sometime in 2018.

“Color of Money” explores and documents societal issues in an unyielding and yet illustrative fashion. Focusing on a broad range of issues, the exhibition also features the abuse and control of women with additional storylines ranging from human trafficking to sexual harassment.


Shot on film, “Color of Money” combines a stylized technique with a jarring and yet emotional touch. The images challenge and confront the viewer as we sense a shift in the power dynamic.

Huss Hardan is the resident artist at huZ galleries

The photographer reveals his process…“Once I had the concept, I would story board the shots so that I could explain to the model exactly what was needed and there would be no hold ups in the project.”

Eight of Hardan’s works will be featured from his Anguish and Obsession trilogy. With each series the magnitude of the story becomes darker and more graphic.

While creating his first series, Hardan hired models to photograph…but now he said many are interested in collaborating, since they have seen the results of his previous projects.


The photographer has exhibited in galleries across the globe as well as in several established Los Angeles galleries at Bergamot Station Arts Center. His work has also been featured at prestigious art fairs such as LA Art Show and photo l.a.

Hardan said he is excited to exhibit his second series and wanted the viewers to walk away with an increased awareness in the abuse of women through human trafficking and sexual assault.


The art of Randi Matushevitz is also exhibited at the gallery in a solo exhibition entitled “Urban Dilemmas.  The artist said that her art is inspired by the contradictions of everyday life. This is the first time she has shown her work at the gallery. “Exhibiting with huZ galleries has been a wonderful experience allowing me to bring my voice to their gallery.”

The closing reception of “Color of Money” will be held on Saturday January 27th from 3-6pm at huZ galleries located at 341 West 7th St San Pedro, 90731; There will be an artist talk at 4pm with both artists.
