I often try to begin a painting by pasting an image to the canvas in order to have something to react to.  Often these collaged images will be completely buried and the piece will remain purely non-representational.  Other times, as in this piece an image or two will remain having something more to say to the viewer.

Getting to Know Scott

Scott Hunter explores different arrangements of textures, colors and shapes through his abstract expressionist work. Though many different things inspire his art, he feels most encouraged by his drive to make paintings that mean something. 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.
