December 9, 2010 through March 5, 2011
Join us as part-time Louisiana resident, Hunt Slonem, exhibits his most recent works based on the alluring landscape of Louisiana. Though Slonem resides in New York City for much of the year, he often seeks the romance, mystery, and tranquility he finds in Louisiana. The owner of two 19th century plantation homes seated in the country, Slonem has immersed himself in the slow, sleepy, and exotic locale of the rural South.
Unlike his images of rabbits, birds, and tigers, Slonem turns his eye to the striking flora and fauna of tropical southwestern Louisiana. His imagery and style lie equally on the continuum between abstraction and representation, mimicking a surrealistic character that pervades rural folklore. Working with the same sumptuous texture and movement of his previous paintings, Slonem’s new monumental 9X9 foot landscapes capture the bayou’s edge as it winds through high grasses and rice fields, or the thick, lush, and languid lines of Live Oak trees.
