Kenny Hunter makes elegant sculptures in many materials including wood, plastic, iron and bronze. He remains fascinated by the processes involved in making sculpture in the studio and the power that they have to transform materials in order to express his complex and vivid ideas on historical time.
For this inaugural exhibition at House for an Art Lover's new Pavilion Gallery, Kenny Hunter will display a selection of new and existing sculpture with their packing crates. Overall the separate artworks will be stacked and arranged to create a single form. This installation will suggest process and flux, being part studio and part retrospective.
The title 'Kontrapunkt' utilizes the German word for counterpoint, implying the duality of meaning that is often present in the artist's work. Or could it suggest that his crafted, representational studio based practice is in some way at odds with the generation of Artists he belongs to?
