About the Artist
Hunt Slonem (born Hunt Slonim, July 18, 1951) is an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker inspired by nature . He is best known for his Neo-Expressionist paintings including series of bunnies, butterflies and tropical birds. This series are strongly inspired by a large number of bird species (more than 100) he keeps in an aviary located in his workshop. He is also known for his large-scale sculptures and restorations of historic buildings.
Slonem's works are in many important collections of 250 museums around the world, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Whitney, the Miro Foundation and the New Orleans Museum of Art.
He exhibits regularly at both public and private venues. He received numerous distinction and awards.
Ge. Pellini, an artist who abides by the «Less is more» principle, keeps on sustaining and purifying his artistic proceeding. His diverse variations on the theme of the horned animal sustain his current research and projects. Thus he deliberately enlarges the horn, draws more flexible lines and eliminates the details that he finds somewhat boring.
His mighty animals, for instance the bull or the rhinoceros, aren’t frozen but shaped in their own movements.
This artist, born in Nancy (France), is not just an animal sculptor, or a naturalist, but also one who analyses the quintessence of his subjects. His need for creating is obvious but the working drawing takes him quite a long and demanding time. Perfectionist and full of passion as he is, he sculpts in the finest marble, which is a heavy and inconvenient material.
By dint of muscular and artistic power, he is cast away by a subtle, tridimensional process into the far reaching spheres of today’s artistic creations. There rises a mighty form of art : the shades underline the main, plain and pure lines.
There rise the volumes and the careful polish enhance the mineral matter.
From the original marble piece to the bronze or aluminium works there oozes the delicate touch by way of a plain aesthetic drive which bursts forth and is the specificity of the artist. Pellini is able to catch the very essence of things and shuns complexity. States the artist willingly : «Technique can’t dominate art», «to reach plainness one has to be right».
These aphorisms perfectly apply to his productions. This plainness of his should be seen as a straightforward, aesthetic and forceful drive to the essential, which can also be found in his nature. This artist enthrals you with his omnipresent character. That is precisely what singles him out : that never ending quest, that obvious refusal of realism, those timeless conceptions that are akin to abstraction and which are quite figurative, though.
If Ge Pellini is often called abroad it is to work on a large scale. In China his famous «French Kiss» carved on the spot in a 50 ton block – can be found in the world’s largest sculpture park.
