About the Artist
Originally from Basalt, CO, Hunter Ash is living and working as an abstract artist in Austin, TX. She earned her BFA at Baylor University where she studied Studio Art. Quickly after moving to Austin, she held a solo invitational exhibition at The Riveter Austin and was soon picked up by the Austin Art Garage where she’s currently represented. Hunter has developed an engaging and deeply personal commission process she uses to invite others into her painting practice. She has had the privilege of making custom art for people in Austin and beyond for over two years. Hunter’s abstract paintings offer movement, depth, and clear direction with room for individual interpretation, provoking contemplation, and discussion. As she explores what may often be seen as intangible or foreign, Hunter exposes the unseen through painting in a way that is palatable, visually intriguing and impossible to ignore.
My work is a translation of the emotional human experience. My approach to painting is meditative with a focus on portraying memories, moments, and the nuances of human relationships through abstract narrative. My desire to learn more about myself and the community I'm surrounded by is what drives me to create. My process is tactile and engaging. Using elements such as textured strokes, poured or painted hues, and gestural marks, I work to create paintings that captivate an audience and cultivate creativity in the world around me.
