Untitled (Grey) - Richard Hunt
Untitled (Grey)
Description

Hunt's works, whether sculptural or 2-dimensional maintain a strong focus on nature and natural forms. In his sculpture, Hunt uses material expression to draw out the connection between technology and nature. In Hunt’s prints, he uses the surface of the page to investigate spatial relationships and forms.

From the Artist:

    “One of the central themes in my work is the reconciliation of the organic and the industrial. I see my work as forming a kind of bridge between what we experience in nature and what we experience from the urban, industrial, technology-driven society we live in. I like to think that within the work . . . there is a resolution of the tensions between the sense of freedom one has in contemplating nature and the sometimes restrictive, closed feeling engendered by the rigors of the city.”

Richard Hunt, quoted in Samella S. Lewis, African American Art and Artists (Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 2003, 209).
