Lot description
Based on his personal aviary, a consistent source of inspiration, Hunt Slonem composes a dense gird of owl forms, playing with color, texture and repetition to blur the line between abstraction and representation.

Hunt Slonem’s (b.1951) work combines abstract expressionism with representational imagery in vibrant ranges of exotic colors. He creates idiosyncratic portrayals of exotic birds and other creatures, most often utilizing a white textured background to support quickly-applied brush strokes reminiscent of the visual poetry of the abstract expressionism. Slonem studied at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1972 and earned his BA in 1973 from Tulane University, New Orleans, LA. Slonem has received numerous awards and honors for his work, including a1991 National Endowment for the Arts Grant and most recently the 2009 Stars of Design Award, New York, NY. His work has been the subject of recent solo exhibitions at DTR Modern Galleries, Boston, MA (2012); Couture Galeri, Stockholm, Sweden (2011); Marlborough Gallery, New York, NY (2011); and National Gallery for Foreign Art, Sofia, Bulgaria (2010). He is currently represented by Marlborough Gallery in New York.
