A glimpse into my painting practice. Through this livestream, I'm showing more of my process, my heart behind what I do and the physicality of the mediums I use. I'll open it up for questions to be answered in the second video in order to connect with viewers! Excited to show you how I create my artwork!
Hunter is a native of Basalt, CO, living and working as an abstract painter in Austin, TX. She makes abstract oil and acrylic pour paintings that explore the intricacies of the emotional human experience. Hunter earned a BFA from Baylor University, where she discovered her love for painting and the powerful use of painting as a type of language that is liberating and engaging. People, moments, memories, intimate parts of relationships - these all affect how we view and interact with the world, which she believes can be understood and expressed through compositions of color. Painting is what pushes her to keep challenging and questioning herself.
Hunter's work has been shown at Fort Works Art Gallery, Martin Museum of Art, Cultivate 712 in Waco, the Artscape Annual Fine Art Show at the Dallas Arboretum. She's held a solo exhibition at the Riveter, ATX and her work is shown and sold through the Austin Art Garage. Local publications include Tribeza and EastSide Magazine.
I use painting to interpret the intricacies of the emotional humans experience. People, moments, and memories all affect how we view and interact with the world, which I believe can be understood and expressed through compositions of color. Each of my paintings have a heartbeat, a rhythm, a story. They are abstract, visual representations of what it looks like to attempt to better understand what this world throws at us. As I explore what may often be seen as intangible, I expose the unseen through painting in a way that's more palatable, visually intriguing and impossible to ignore.
