Quick Facts
Statement

"Newel Hunter’s monochrome paintings have been all about gesture for some time. His swirls, drips and bleeds of fluid black acrylic whirl like dervishes against the blank page. Yet, while the artist’s gestures stand only for themselves, his collaboration with the laws of chance results in ambiguous fields of positive and negative space that invite interpretation like the blots of a Rorschach test.”

-- Jake Seniuk, Former Executive Director, Port Angeles Fine Arts Center

I paint almost exclusively in black and white acrylic on a variety of surfaces, employing a selection of non-traditional painting tools – many of which I make myself – to produce arresting images with a sense of depth and sculptural form.

I rarely know what I'm going to paint beforehand, choosing to let my subconscious direct the work and guide my hand -- allowing chance to play an important role in shaping the final product. As you might expect, my technique is highly fluid and very physical.

Each piece evolves as though it were a conversation between old friends... sometimes lighthearted and joyful, sometimes contentious and troubling. In the end, it’s all about painting “in the moment,” delighting in the physical and letting it be. Just that simple … and complex.

I've exhibited extensively and I'm thankful my work has found a home among international collectors. I'm also proud to be one of only 44 international artists featured in Aleatoric Art in the 21st Century. At 240 pages, this coffee table-sized book is the definitive volume on the role of chance in contemporary fine art.
