After receiving a BFA from NSCAD University in 1990 Danny Hussey exhibited work in Halifax for several years before relocating to Ottawa. Hussey has had many solo and group shows, exhibiting both nationally and internationally. In 2002 Hussey was short listed for the RBC Canadian Painting Competition. He has received grants from the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Ottawa, and the Province of Nova Scotia. Hussey’s work can be found in the collection of the City of Ottawa, the Nova Scotia Art Bank, as well as corporate collections such as Nortel Networks in Ottawa, and Organza Foods in Winnipeg and Rotary Home in Ottawa.
Recent and upcoming projects have combined; painting, plywood constructions, wood cuts, block printing, screen printing, photography, and video. Subjects are derived from significant moments in time and then expanded to reveal the consequence of that experience.
In 2009/10 Hussey worked as a technical assistant for prominent Ottawa artist Jerry Grey helping her complete a major commission. Hussey also continues to work on his latest project entitled Midday Matinee and his on going series of screen prints on artist photographs.
