The artist, represented by Madison Gallery in La Jolla.
The highly anticipated opening this weekend at the Madison Gallery in La Jolla (shown above) is Hunt Slonem's third solo exhibition, When Art Meets Design. Arguably one of the most fascinating artists of our time, Slonem has remained a representational and expressionist artist even during conceptualism's dominance. He is one of the few contemporary artists that have remained true to himself and his style. His latest book, along with this exhibit, When Art Meets Design, celebrates Slonem's approach to color and defined aesthetics with new selected artworks featuring Slonem's popular series of bunnies, butterflies, birds and new landscapes.
What is likely to strike you as you read this book is how Hunt the designer and Hunt the artist together make so much sense, as he graciously welcomes us into his own stunning homes in Louisiana and upstate New York. His views on design offer a design-oriented context to the way that he creates his art, as though he is thinking above and beyond the moment in which he paints. Slonem is a decorator, a collector, a colorist, and an artist who is so prolific that he has been compared to Warhol and Picasso. See a few takeaways from his latest book here-
