“I am consistently thinking about the idea that, in some works such as this one, the individual shapes and patterns are present all along, and I am simply taking the role of a sculptor and peeling back and removing layers to uncover what's already inherently there.” — Will Hutnick
Will Hutnick (b.1985) uses mixed media to question ideas about chance, method, and materiality. Process figures heavily in his work, combining additive and reductive tactics to create imagery that appears unearthed rather than applied with brush. His strong sense of color and shape has obvious valences with cartography and topography, in addition to geology, textile, and printmaking. Hutnick received a BA from Providence College and his MFA from Pratt Institute. He has curated and exhibited across the country, and his work has appeared in New American Paintings.
