Description

Richard Howard Hunt’s “Paper Piece I” is the culmination of his decades of work in both printmaking and sculpture, two fields in which he’d established a successful career when this piece was created in 1978. It was part of a series of cast-paper “prints” executed at Lakeside Studios in Illinois - where, in 1969, he had been the first artist to print a lithograph at the popular studio founded by John Wilson.

Hunt’s Abstract composition, like all of his prints, is informed by his continued exploration of the existence of objects in space. Whether working on a flat surface or in three dimensions, he is building environments, and in “Paper Piece I” he applies this theory and his experience with lithography and sculpture to the matrix. Heavy, structure-like shapes are the basis of the composition, but he has carefully applied the ephemeral, cloud-like formations of color that will surround them to the matrix first, thus creating a sense of depth and movement on the flat surface.
