LAURA HUNT

"The works in my series, Humans Being, depict symbolic figures that allow us to see our neighbors or ourselves in the undefined faces. I look for universality, no matter the color of the skin. Faces and hair can be blue, green, white, pink, purple—whatever works to serve the composition and my intent. Color and body language convey the emotion of the moment, of the life experienced by each subject. These archetypal humans dwell in ambiguous backgrounds where the sense of place only suggests surroundings familiar to all of us. Threading its way in and out of the works is a theme of social awareness. I want these paintings to prompt the telling of narratives and to inspire empathetic conversations. These works are my means of expressing the divinity and diversity of human beings, no matter their circumstances or status in the culture we share".​ Laura Hunt
