For the past 60 years, David Huggins has been living a life a bit out of the ordinary.
Since the tender age of 8, Huggins, a Georgia native, has been encountering UFOs and aliens, he says. In 1987, he began documenting his lifelong experiences in oil paintings.
Last Saturday at Balance Hair Salon, also known as 18 Erie Gallery, in Jersey City, he displayed many of these works at the opening reception for "The UFO Abductee Experience Exhibition With David Huggins.''
On display through May 1 are 35 of Huggins' simple, yet meaningful, works featuring himself along with "the little Greys," "Crescent," a "little hairy guy" and a giant insect, all beings he says have been present in his life since the beginning of his encounters.
"Showing Me My Other Body," for example, is a painting of Huggins looking at himself lying naked on an examining table. In "Eight Greys Floating Down," meanwhile, Huggins depicts eight aliens floating into the woods.
