KW Contemporary Art presents 'Hunt Slonem: Midsummer Dreams' exhibit

KENNEBUNK, Maine — KW Contemporary Art presents the first solo exhibition of the work of Hunt Slonem. Slonem’s iconic Neo-Expressionist works capture the imagination and allow us to escape to new worlds. In Midsummer Dreams we explore these worlds and dreams they engender. Bucolic bayous, shimmering butterfly wings, and whimsical bunnies together create a world of beauty and opulence. Each lush brushstroke brings a new flight of fancy that asks us to ruminate on the world. Do we create our dreams or do our dreams create us?

Vestiges of grandeur: Artist Hunt Slonem aims to restore Searles Castle as a private residence

GREAT BARRINGTON — Spend any time at all contemplating the catalogue of Hunt Slonem’s work, and the artist’s proclivity for patterns becomes immediately apparent. “I think divinity is found in repetition,” the Brooklyn-based painter told The Edge. It reveals a belief system metaphysically aligned with noticing the details that abound — in the individual blades of grass upon a lawn, or each completely one-of-a-kind snowflake in a winter storm. Slonem paints five days a week, strictly in his studio, and begins each morning with warm-up exercises of repeating rabbits. “Repetition is a way of imbibing something and becoming one with it; the more familiar you are, the better the alignment.” Slonem calls it the will of the Divine, a perspective likely born of a near-death experience 16 years ago that has him firmly grounded in the present — where the American artist is being counted as one of Great Barrington’s newest residents.

Hunt Slonem: Curiouser and Curiouser

Hunt Slonem: Curiouser and Curiouser at K Contemporary in Denver features 200 pieces from the New York artist’s career—including his signature bunnies. While exploring the K Contemporary exhibition Curiouser and Curiouser, I felt more of a palpable whimsy than anything that resembled curiosity. Curiosity is a gut feeling that inspires us to ask “what if?” and to peel back layer after layer to reveal hidden truths and unexpected possibilities.
