David Hunt was born in Long Beach, California; lived in the Philippine Islands and the New England Coast before settling in Cincinnati, Ohio.
He studied product design at the University of Cincinnati and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design.
During his studies, his painting style was influenced by artists Robert Fabe, Phil Foster and Reginald Grooms.
David's professional career included extensive work as product development consultant and as an Adjunct Instructor at the Design, Art and Architecture College at the University of Cincinnati.
There is a dream-like touch to his landscapes. His transitions in tone and color between trees, sky, water or fields are at times subtle; at other times very severe in contrast and value.
“With the dramatic approach to light and shadow, David Hunt’s paintings have a vividness conveyed by the extreme contrasts of his scenes. He trains the spotlight on certain details, illuminating elements that might have otherwise been lost in the dimness: the elegant curve of a road, a moonlit path, an old fence in the fog. These facets coalesce into striking compositions that are as intriguing and they are arresting.”
My paintings are a personal record of places that inspire me. My works are expressive landscapes and seascapes that challenge the viewer to stop, enjoy and wonder.
I use color and contrast to evoke a feeling from the viewer: the misty stillness of a long-ago battlefield, the beauty of a sunrise or sunset, the mystical serenity of the deep woods, quiet harbor or winding highway.
My current work is inspired by the artists of the Rookwood Pottery Company who pioneered the “Vellum” glaze technique introduced in 1904 during the Arts and Crafts Movement. My style is called “Dreamscape.”
