ROBERT S. HUNTER
After retiring as a High School, Art Teacher Robert S. Hunter built a studio in his backyard and started a second career as a practicing artist. His chosen area of artistic expression is printmaking and it has a major digital component which was inspired through his study of digital imaging at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. He has been the recipient of many awards has exhibited his prints all over the United States and Europe.
I create prints using computer software and it is quite different from traditional printmaking. Digital Printmaking provides opportunities to manipulate color, texture, size, placement, and transparency that are unavailable in any other print medium. I take full advantage of digital layering and my work usually contains very dense, rich surfaces. My prints tend to be narrative in nature but generally in an opened ended way. Each image is printed using archival pigment inks on cotton rag paper and is usually produced in an edition of 10 prints.
