Reception: Saturday, August 11, 6:00-8:00pm Artist Talk: Thursday, August 30, 7:00-8:30pm
Scott Hunter’s work is rooted in tradition, drawn from observation and constructed with imagination. It is about the arrangement of images, textures, colors and shapes. He produces two distinct bodies of paintings, working in both a representational and nonrepresentational manner while struggling with the need to merge figuration with a love of abstract expressionism. Both evoke a specific place or memory and resonate with emotional presence. Three Foot Square will offer a selection of new abstract paintings and invites you to consider these works in relation to the traditions of both realism and abstraction.
