Statement, November, 2006
“Prior to painting I was a tapestry weaver and patterns continue to show
up in my work. The paintings always start out as loose pencil or watercolor sketches. They are then translated into my memories of landscapes and
other organic layers and shapes.
The structure, layering, brushwork and mood are as important as color to
create a feeling. I try to develop a look that has enough body but is not overtly sentimental. I also like to juxtapose perspective and directions.
I work toward an expressive and non-literal natural world which is painted in and painted out, exploring forms and structure to arrive at a cohesive whole.”
Hunter Hogan's work is included in several corporate collections including Sterling Drug, Chugai-Upjohn, Ernst and Young, Satellite Health Care of Mountain View, CA, and the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. One of her tapestries was featured in a show entitled “Significant Colorado Women Artists of the 20th Century” which traveled around the western region and to the National Museum of Women in the Arts
in Washington D.C.
