Christopher Padgett Hunnicutt is life long visual/kinetic/multimedia artist; his work is collected and exhibited internationally.
In his work, Christopher explores processes that play with recognition and orientation around kinetic relationships and the composition of visual narratives. He is interested in exploring different art media while developing techniques through an emergent process of exploration and discovery.
“Working spontaneously, without preconceived notion, allows the painting to paint itself; this process recursively informs by expressing the character of its own design and process, reflecting the context of the approach. It's like getting out of the way so that the fingers of our fundamental nature can inform.”
~Christopher Padgett Hunnicutt
Often, he encourages the viewer to compose and narrate/interpret their own experience of his work. He thinks that this can evoke an intersubjective relationship/dialogue with the viewer and the work itself; freeing the viewer to translate what they see through their own viewpoint, process, and perspective to explore the potential of what he calls the “permeable visual narratives.” People have reported a dream-like effect, seeing intricate scenes while viewing/ experiencing his works.
Christopher Padgett Hunnicutt resides in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Christopher attended the University of Iowa’s College of Liberal Arts between 1990 and 1993, studying Watercolor/Acrylic Painting, Life/Media Drawing, and Graphic Design in the School of Art. https://art.uiowa.edu/about/historical-timeline-school-art-and-art-history
