Julianne Hunter: IN SEARCH OF
My artwork explores recollection and residue, investigating larger topics of mapping, psychology, and personal and shared histories. Archiving specific landmarks and memories, I trace my own travels, experiences, and timeline which engage in a broader language of loss and decay. Repetition in process and the use of meaningful materials release and memorialize objects, where materiality is essential to the work and embeds meaning within the emotional content of each piece. Concept is intrinsically linked by using items such as architecture, clothing, and paper to create a base knowledge between my own experience and viewers' perception. Time and repetition within research, process, and the making of the pieces are crucial components to my practice and the outcome. Through repurposing objects and images, the work reinforces a connection between time, history, decay, and growth to create a new narrative. — Julianne Hunter
