Sultan Gallery in collaboration with Cuadro Gallery (Dubai) presents New Species by Hunt Slonem
New Species is a solo exhibition by acclaimed American abstract painter Hunt Slonem who is best known for his paintings of tropical birds and butterflies. His paintings are inspired by his personal aviary in which he keeps more than one hundred live birds of various species. His work depicts a reverence for exotic life forms, birds, butterflies and flowers. Once a painting has been completed with visual stories and compositional balancing acts, he inscribes the surface with a furiously cross-hatched mesh of lines, cutting through the rich oil to give an abstract, painterly and tactile effect with an implied impression of spatial depth. His jarring color choices, spontaneous mark making and scratched hatch marks are the result of his ongoing fascination with the manipulation and implementation of paint.
