Sarah Hunter: Histories (Recent Paintings)
Exhibition Dates: June 16, 2008 - July 11, 2008
Sarah Hunter is a still life painter whose work conjures an alternate, or future, animal run world. These pseudo-narratives look to early Renaissance frescoes, illustrations in natural history texts and urban architecture as inspiration. Within the scraped oil paint and inscribed graphite marks of the composition, ideas of displacement, memory and uncertainty are addressed. Sarah Hunter lives and works in Philadelphia. She graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and has shown most recently with the Midwives Collective Gallery and the Rodger Lapelle Gallery (Philadelphia, PA).
