Nelson New Zealand
"Layers of images, words, and memories etch themselves upon the soul and embed themselves within the spirit. Each succession seems to cover and hide those that went before, and yet, they are not gone-not one has been erased, they lie dormant waiting to be revealed again".
Simon Hunter is a Nelson based artist. His art practice uses a multi media approach to create artwork that explores layers, traces, and histories both in the physicality of the work and the ideas he engages with. Hunter’s process uses de-constructed binary code, text, and varying coloured layers of paint to create contemplative surfaces. He currently works at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology for the Digital technologies, Arts and Media faculty.
