Piece description from the artist
This is part of an abstract series experimenting with segmentation and communication, where circular stencils were used in multiple forms. Most of the work in this series is an effort towards abstract expressionism, where the composition takes shape subjectively.
The work is an artifact of the physical forces which it has interacted with; capturing both the psychographic energy of the artist and the electrical energy of the generators.
The primacy of an image acquiesces to the act of translation, where the viewer creates the meaning for his or her self.
Cory Hunter is an artist from Miami, Florida, who works at the intersection of art and science. He describes his main motivation as “capturing the creative moment;” rather than creating an image, the intent of the work is to translate the psychographic energy of his movements, while allowing the physical properties of the medium to shape the resulting compositions. In this way, his work can be explained as aleatoric, for a portion of the creative process is left to chance.
Cory’s art is an exploration of how spontaneity is at once random and uniform, given the principles of fractal geometry. Stylistically, his work is a blend of classical oriental watercolor with contemporary pop art and abstract expressionism. His use of gouache paint allows for strong, striking, color combination, but maintains a delicate feel. Though the subject matter of his works varies, he explains that using recognizable iconography encourages a subjective interpretation.
