With over twenty years of experience as a creative director, image-maker, conceptual thinker and designer, artist Lisa Hunt decided it was time to get back to what makes her happiest: creating art with her own hands. As someone who experiences the world fully through all of her senses, she gravitates toward materials with natural, tactile properties that appeal to both the eye and the touch. That attraction led her to launch her line of home decor with a collection of art prints (The Alchemy Collection) that play with the rhythmic repetition of graphic, geometric symbols and forms. Using gold as a unifier for the series, background becomes foreground, generating both dynamism and serenity.
What Does Black History Month Mean To You This Year?
Black Lives Matter! This year in particular I can’t help but think about the tragedy unfolding in Flint, Michigan. Throughout our history in this country we have been brutalized and marginalized and still the travesty, the blatant disregard for human life is hard to comprehend happening in 2016. Last year, this year and next year I hope to never underestimate the breadth, power and beauty of our contributions to the world at large.
What's Is On Trend Right Now For You?
Gold and other metals have transformative powers and are an enduring theme in my work. As a creative person I observe the trends but in my own work I find constant inspiration in classic forms, colors and creative processes.
