Anita Hunt's prints are deeply rooted in places
near and dear to her. She studied art at
Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and at the School of the Museum of
Fine Arts, Boston. Her copperplate etchings combine traditional methods with
newer, less toxic materials and processes. An active printmaker for more than
30 years, she works in her home studio in rural New England and at Zea Mays
Printmaking in Northampton, MA. Anita is a Past President of the Monotype Guild
of New England and an elected member of the Boston Printmakers, the Society of
Graphic Artists (SAGA) and the Los Angeles Printmaking Society. She exhibits
her work internationally.
In order to make a print I will work from my sketches I made of ordinary people in a variety of circumstances as well as drawings from a model or some experience in my life. My prints are about feelings and states of mood, about dreams and expectations. Often I express them through the female figure. I play a roleof narrator and storyteller but I encourage the viewer to approach the piece with his or her unique experience or memory. I enjoy working with relief and intaglio technique as well as monotype. Frequently I like to combine multiple styles and methods to create my own style. Lately I have explored the art of handmade artists’ books as a flexible medium with a wide range of artistic expression and a creative way how to utilize my prints.
