Steven M Hunter - Fine Arts ARPS: Statement of Intent

 

 

The Puna de Atacama is a high altitude plateau in northern Argentina. Created over millennia ago by extensive volcanic activity, extreme temperature and arid high winds.

 

 

My panel focuses on the minimalistic elements of simple graphical structure, shape, lines and curves, colour and luminosity, and importantly the effect the unique high altitude light has upon the landscape.

 

 

The predawn light creates a delicate painterly brush stroke impression, a myriad of soft tones, colours, gentle sculptured curves, diagonals and fine detail. Dream-like, peaceful, ethereal. In complete contrast as the sun breaks and sets, the intense low angled light illuminates the powerful geometric aspects of the landscape, of simple shape, sweeping lines and texture, full richer colours and contrasting luminosity. Dramatic, theatrical, grandeur.

 

 

In summary, my artistic interpretation of this amazing place captures the essence of the landscape, conveying the moods, feelings and emotions I experienced. At the same time, the creative non prescriptive approach allows others to formulate their own personal interpretation.
