Artist of the Month

August 2015

Our featured artist for August is Hunter Christensen. Hunter uses various materials - from unique objects, to salvaged wood, to photography - and re-purposes them into new, imaginative forms. Visit his website at www.hunterchristensen.com for more examples of his work.

Inspirations

Hunter's greatest joy comes from creating things. The "things" change often, but the heart behind it remains constant. When Hunter sees something in his head that is within his abilities (or preferably a little bit outside of his abilities), he has to do it. He describes it as pulling the future into the present.

I take things tossed aside, either by being deemed obsolete or simply being labeled unwanted. Take them, look at them a little differently and they regain life and function and wantedness. They also invite the touch of the viewer (and actually require it).
