Scott Hunter
Bethel Park, Pennsylvania

Scott Hunter explores different arrangements of textures, colors and shapes through his Abstract Expressionist work. Though many different things inspire his work, he feels most encouraged by his drive to make paintings that mean something. When he’s not making art, he enjoys spending time his wife, kids and a Boston Terrier named Alfie. As a kid, he stood with his mother at the National Gallery of Art and gazed at a Willem de Kooning piece. He told his mom he could’ve painted that himself. She challenged him to do so and he’s been attempting to do so for the past 30 years. De Kooning became one of his biggest influences. Scott currently lives in Pennsylvania.

Comments About This Piece

This piece was inspired by the urban landscape surrounding my studio. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
