Anita Hunt's prints are deeply rooted in places
near and dear to her. She studied art at
Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and at the School of the Museum of
Fine Arts, Boston. Her copperplate etchings combine traditional methods with
newer, less toxic materials and processes. An active printmaker for more than
30 years, she works in her home studio in rural New England and at Zea Mays
Printmaking in Northampton, MA. Anita is a Past President of the Monotype Guild
of New England and an elected member of the Boston Printmakers, the Society of
Graphic Artists (SAGA) and the Los Angeles Printmaking Society. She exhibits
her work internationally.
“When I draw on a surface I start perceiving emerging forms. I am curious. Some marks are explicit and others ambiguous. I am usually not aware of anything specific, but follow the impulse to experience fecund possibility. I am intrigued and obsessed with this realm. It is in this state where mystery lives. It is in this state I feel most at home. Mystery in a work is vital for me. Being in the moment and keeping the work alive are the essence. I believe that as individuals, we have our interpretations and perceptions as unique indicators that are more intimate an imprint than our genetics. They inform the mesh of our experience, knowledge and intuition and do somehow become our existence.”
