Hunter Jay

"I'm intrigued by mystery and strive to capture this in anything I paint. My subject matter varies, but the aim is to invite the viewer to interpret a hidden element, which can be literal or thematic."

In his work, Hunter Jay aims to reveal the wonder of the hidden world around us. He likes to focus on the geometry of the composition, the way the elements are arranged on the canvas. Sometimes, he finds that this becomes more important than the actual subject matter. His work embraces an admiration of simplicity and evokes a contemplative and peaceful place.

Hunter Jay's paintings are created with multiple layers of transparent glazes. Each layer affects the next, creating an arresting depth of field. The final details are created with the finest natural liner brushes.

Largely self taught as a fine artist, Hunter Jay has an innate sense of composition that aligns with his background in graphic design, contributing to the overall illustrative impact of his work.
