DESCRIPTION

These paintings, vertically hung rectangles varying in size, consist of  simple bands and alternating minor sections or arcs that play with hue, value, and chromaticity as well as with edges that go in and out of focus with time and sustained viewing.  Despite the endless looking, adjusting and readjusting of paint-stroke or color in one's work; when it is finished, taken out of the studio and hung on the walls of a clean white gallery, one will, with a fresh eye, often notice aspects of a shape, an edge or a juxtaposition of two elements, that compels one to make new work.  It is with this sense of inquiry, of unanswered questions, and curiosity that Rella Stuart-Hunt continues to paint.
