Hunt Slonem

Whistler Contemporary Gallery , 110-4293 Mountain Square

Hunt Slonem is known for his repetition of rabbits, parrots, and butterflies which he keeps as pets in his home. However, the Bunny Series is internationally renowned, providing a remarkable ode to one of nature's most beloved and mythical creatures, ready to bring good fortune to every lucky viewer. "My environment is the recreation of my experiences in nature as well as the outside world" - Hunt Slonem The artist is primarily a painter focused on a naturalistic subject matter with an emphasis on bright color. His reference to the mystical is prevalent as his work pivots between the fantastic and the natural; these natural forms ultimately become the subjects for many of his artworks. Repetition is also a prominent aspect of his work, to Hunt they are a reference to Andy Warhol however the true nature of his repetition is a spiritual practice and worship.
