Dan Hunt - Ai Weiwei
Dan Hunt A4 print
Head and shoulders above the rest these men are selected, however, the process does not hinge on success, but on the poetic power hidden in their gaze. These characters are idiosyncratic, brought together to communicate often concealed histories. The viewer is encouraged to lean in and explore the fine contours and busy lines whilst establishing for themselves the stories that are mapped out. From front men to film stars, but all aging performers with life etched into their skin. Deep set eyes, crow’s feet and disheveled hair, a myriad of tales told in a face.
Mr Hunt says of his own work "I like drinking 4 cans and having a go at drawing sumet. Sometimes its bad sometimes its ok. I find it relaxing."
