CHL0403 - Bunny Painting

2013

$6,975

About

This whimsical and sophisticated painting was realized by the esteemed contemporary painter, Hunt Slonem in 2013. It presents a stylized bunny rabbit, rendered with loose and expressive brush strokes in black and white paint. Bold, graphic and beautiful this piece represents an especially strong example of his practice. Represented by the International blue-chip art gallery Marlborough Gallery, Slonem's work is held in museum collections around the world including the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Metropolitan Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum in New York, The Guggenheim Museum and The Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, Spain. His work is also featured in the personal collections of numerous celebrities and high profile collectors including Sharon Stone, Gina Gershon, Kate Hudson and many more. The legendary critic Roberta Smith once opined in a New York Times piece that Slonem's "witty Formalism strategy meshes the creatures into the picture plane and sometimes nearly obliterates them as images, but it also suspends and shrouds them in a dim, atmospheric light that is quite beautiful." This piece represents a particularly strong example of his practice- sure to delight discerning collectors of first-rate contemporary art as well as those looking for a stunning painting that promises to complement any interior. With its neo-expressionist style and monochromatic grisaille palate, this piece would be a winning addition to any interior from classic Mid Century Modern to contemporary. It comes presented in the artist's original antique gilded gallery frame (a key aspect of his practice) with neoclassical detailing throughout. The painting is signed "Hunt Slonem", inscribed "CHL0403" and dated 2013 verso. Excellent condition. American, 2013 Dimensions: Overall: 12.75"W X 14.75"H X 2.5"D Image: 7.5"W X 9.5"H

About Hunt Slonem (Artist)

“I believe in repetition like a holy mantra or rosary,” neo-Expressionist painter Hunt Slonem (b. 1951) told Introspective, referring to his artistic method. “I am slightly influenced by Pop art, like the repetition of soup cans, postage stamps and celebrities. It’s something I have been doing my whole life.”


Slonem, who often depicts birds, rendered in thick, gestural brushstrokes and arranged in a loose grid, developed his fascination with tropical avian life during a childhood spent in Hawaii and Nicaragua. Today, his 30,000-square-foot studio in Brooklyn contains an aviary, along with a personal garden, a collection of antiques and walls and walls of artworks.


Besides birds, Slonem also paints bunnies — so many that they’ve become a signature. Limned in expressive, urgent strokes on flat, vibrantly colored backgrounds, these creatures fascinate through their subtle variations. “I have painted hundreds of rabbits, but each one is different,” the artist has explained. “Each has its own personality, and it just comes through me.”


The multitalented Slonem also sculpts, makes prints, creates installations and restores historic spaces. His work has achieved cult status among collectors and is represented in the permanent collections of such esteemed institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Slonem has even made an appearance on Real Housewives of New York.
