An exhibition of paintings and works on paper from Guild Hall’s permanent collection which demonstrates the path an artist takes from representation to abstraction. Using figure and landscape as bookends, this selection follows the formal trajectory from these foundations “towards abstraction.” While some artists approach this undertaking reductively, distilling the subject to its essence, others choose a more expressionistic path, or even a conceptual one. Some straddle multiple methodologies, defying categorization altogether. Traversing genres and generations, Hunt’s choices offers the viewer an opportunity to examine and interpret the process abstraction. Bryan Hunt lives and works in New York City and East Hampton. His work is included in numerous museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and Guild Hall.
