Hunt Slonem Exhibition
September 28 – December 31, 2018
Called a Neo-Expressionist, Hunt Slonem combines Abstract Expressionist techniques with mysticism and animal subjects and is best known for his paintings of tropical birds and bunnies. He uses an abstract platform for his traditional subject matter, developed with gestured brushwork and bold Warholesque repetitive compositions.
This exhibition highlights a series of works seldom seen that were created early in his career and informed by his time spent in Cholula, Mexico while attending the Universidad de las Americas. The vibrant large-scale paintings are filled with Pre-Colombian ceremonial objects on canvases rendered in gold paint and Day-Glo colors.
This exciting exhibition can be seen on the Second Floor Maslow Galleries through December 31st during regular Museum hours.
