Munson Hunt's exquisite sculpture will be on exhibit for the rest of 2017. She has decades of experience working with wood - tree trunks to create her "forms." She then transforms the surface of the forms in a variety of ways. One example includes charring the surface and oiling or waxing it. Another is using marble dust and beeswax to create a translucent surface where the wood base is sometimes evident.
Munson Hunt has also explored the transformation of material - having wood sculpted forms reproduced in other materials, including cement and aluminum. The results are amazing and surprising because the choice of material creates a different surface. For example, the new aluminum form are definitely "hard" whereas wood is seen as a mixture of hard and soft simultaneously.
The exhibit explores these themes, and greater existential ones.
