The Worlds of Hunt Slonem investigates the life and work of this fascinating American artist. Once the enfant terrible of New YorkGÇÖs art world, Hunt Slonem (b. 1951) depicts both natural subjectsGÇöbirds and butterfliesGÇöand portraitsGÇövoodoo saints and Abraham LincolnGÇôin his jubilant, singular paintings. Using multiplicity as a governing principle, Slonem has created a body of work as inimitableGÇöand wildly colorfulGÇöas it is recognizable. This in-depth monograph, which spans SlonemGÇÖs boyhood in Hawaii to his training at Tulane University and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture to his life today, split between New York and New Orleans, features more than 600 vibrant illustrations. Dominique Nahas delves deep beneath the decorative surface of SlonemGÇÖs work to reveal what informs and influences this original and enigmatic artist.
