About

'Untitled' 2016 by renowned New York City artist, Hunt Slonem. Oil on wood panel, 31.25 x 22.5 inches. This antique gold framed painting features a 'fluffle' of five bunnies in black outline on a silver, gold, and green painted wood panel. Considered one of the great colorists of his time, Slonem’s neo-expressionist paintings feature an exuberant and bold, fauvist palette to emphasize his beloved menagerie of animals. In the early 1980s, Slonem began working on a new series of so-called 'Rabbit' paintings. The idea for this critically acclaimed series came to him after he had discovered that the year of his birth, 1951, was the year of the Rabbit in the Chinese zodiac calendar. The often repeated 'Rabbit' imagery in this series is an act similar to citing mantras and spiritual meditation. The artist told the Wall Street Journal, 'Mantras are holy because you repeat them.' Born in Kittery, Maine in 1951, Hunt Slonem attended the prestigious Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine, where he was exposed to influential artists from the New York area including Alex Katz, Alice Neel, Richard Estes, Jack Levine, Louise Nevelson and Al Held. This exposure played a pivotal role in Slonem’s artistic career, as it aided in his decision to move to New York in 1973. Since 1977, Slonem has had over 250 solo exhibitions at prestigious galleries, Museums both domestic and international have collected his work, among them The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Slonem’s work has also been the subject of many books over the course of his career including: Hunt Slonem: An Art Rich and Strange (Abrams Books, 2002), Pleasure Palaces: The Art and Homes of Hunt Slonem (PowerHouse Books, 2007) and The Worlds of Hunt Slonem (Vendome Press, 2011).
