ROBERT S. HUNTER
My images contain representational subjects combined with abstraction. They have narrative components but also invite comparisons of the subject with other abstract elements in the composition. Sometimes these combinations are allegorical and sometimes they are purely visual. I encourage viewers to come to their own conclusions. I favor loose associations over structured symbolism. Texture (both visual and conceptual) is important to me as I find variations in each create a more interesting visual and intellectual experience. The digital print processes which I use to create my images provide unique opportunities to manipulate size, texture, color, and transparency. Sometimes I combine traditional and digital printing techniques to produce my work. My images are usually printed in an edition of ten prints. Recently I have begun to hand bind my prints to create Artist Books which provide an extended dialogue of content which is not possible in a single print.
