Colin Hunt’s paintings sit at the crossroads of memory, loss and ecology. By examining the physical and spatial dynamics of temporality, his paintings grapple with ways in which the residue of experience can animate and recast the natural world. Hunt considers how death reorders the world for all who are left in its wake, forever reshaping reality around the void of the missing.
By recognizing that the enviornment also experiences memory and loss, the works address contradictions in the uncertainty or strangeness of life following great change, to the impossibility of physical bodies containing all of anything, and the ways these inhabit our present.
His work has been featured and/or reviewed in a number of publications including Architectural Digest, New American Paintings, Harper’s, Columbia Magazine, The Brooklyn Review, The New Yorker, and The New York Times.
