Life

Born in England 1941, Hunt is entirely self-taught. He creates his pictures with layered acrylics and glazes.

Paintings

Hunt is known mainly for his still lifes which are often depictions of intimate interiors, both grand and rustic. The scenes are characteristically adorned with familiar objects, particularly empty chairs, dramatically illuminated by a specific light source emanating from a window or doorway. Like the Dutch masters, the surfaces in his paintings are pristine; allowing for the demonstration of technical proficiency though realistic lighting effects such as shadows and reflections.

Exhibitions

He has work permanently on view at The Hunt Gallery, England and the Eleanor Ettinger Gallery, New York. He has also participated in The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition for 6 years, the Paris Salon, National Art Collection Fund and the Society of Equestrian Artists.
