My goal is to paint beautifully that which is not traditionally considered beautiful. Sorta like a less-grotesque Anselm Keifer in a better mood. Thanks for looking.
Charlie Hunter was raised in the house built by his great great great grandfather, majored in art at Yale University, and spent the early part of his career as a graphic designer. He has won numerous awards for his distinctive, near-monochromatic work in water-miscible oil and has said, “My goal is to paint beautifully that which is not traditionally considered beautiful” to which Richard Schmid in Alla Prima II responds “If it is within the realm of human evolution to allow one individual to possess the gift of a natural sense of design then Charlie Hunter is certainly the lucky winner.”
Curiously, his cats remain unimpressed. Charlie's work can be viewed at: www.CharlieHunter.art
