In 2015, Tim Hunter was supported to produce a series of paintings and sculptural work called Orange Room. The series explores the gray area between consumer culture and cultural appreciation: at what point does the appreciation of artworks, artifacts, and people become a consumer past time, and when does an artist go from cultural contributor to retailer? Hunter also aims to examine the history of white male artists painting the nude female form, and reimagines this process through the lens of a young black male artist.
Timothy Hunter was CUE’s 2015 Artist in Residence.
In 2014, Tim Hunter was supported to complete a mixed-media series entitled Orange Series, exploring the balance between aesthetics and message-driven artwork.
