ARTIST STATEMENT
My work explores the spatial and meditative relationships found within repeat patterns. Inspired by Art Deco and comprised of graphic shapes, symbols and re-imagined typographic elements, they are expressed with a minimalist approach. The screen printed patterns allude to indigenous textiles and employ an aesthetic use of gold leaf as a nod to its adorning use throughout art history as well as a comment on materialism and worth.

BIO
Lisa Hunt was born in Rome, New York and currently resides in Brooklyn. A selected series of her screen prints are currently represented by Uprise Art in New York. In 2017 she was a featured artist exhibiting at The Other Art Fair’s inaugural US fair in Brooklyn, New York. She is featured on the cover and in the New York Times bestseller, In The Company of Women by Grace Bonney (2016). Her work has been exhibited at various contemporary venues including the Architectural Digest Design show in New York and Latella Gallery in Washington, DC. Lisa’s exploration with the screen printing process has led to printing her larger scale editions with the master printers at The Lower East Side Printshop in New York. She studied graphic design at Pratt Institute and currently maintains her studio practice in DUMBO, New York.
