Lisa Hunt’s Abstract Various is an abstract screen printed work on grey paper with applied 24K gold leaf. It is a graphic, gridded abstract pattern consisting of repeated squares in random repeat. The prints in the series explore the re-use and reproduction of her archive of gold leaf sheets used in my previous prints. Working the abstracted shapes into repeat, the new series allows for a new expression of the materials and the print making process. Lisa hand applies the gold leaf to each print. Signed and numbered.
The use of gold and gold leaf in Lisa’s art comes from her desire to illuminate her patterns in a way that allows them to endure. Allusions to everything from Art Deco and folk art to typographic elements repurposed and reimagined and the natural world inform her. Through Lisa’s appreciation of indigenous textiles and the decorative arts she seeks to create a visual vocabulary.
