Brian Hunt: Biography

As a product of the 60’s and 70’s, I was greatly influenced and shaped by those years.  It was a time of ideas, music and artistic expression.  Early work included pencil sketches, charcoal drawings, prints, and watercolor.

Those middle years were busy with work and family, but in recent years, photography has inspired me to begin a new journey of expression. As the clock ticks on, I feel more and more compelled to leave something behind. Some marker that says I was here. I hope to build a body of relevant work that can be that legacy.


Artist Statement:

It was an unusually warm and clear day for March.  As I walked through the hotel lobby doors that morning, I set out to explore the city, not knowing what I might find.

To some, a funeral.  To me, an astonishing gathering of people, dignitaries, media, the curious, the haves and the have nots. Together in the streets to show their respect.

All I knew of Rob Ford was what the media had wanted me to know.  But these people, numbered in the thousands, told the truth. And this man, not of great status or wealth, saw fit to wear his Sunday best. It spoke volumes about what this mayor meant to the people of Toronto.

ViewPoint’s July exhibition : “On Reflection” by Paul Haresign Williams

Hazard Center Reflection titled 300dpi MAL

Exhibition Running: July 7 – 31, 2016
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 7, 6 – 8 pm
Artist Talk:
Sunday, July 17, 2pm
On Reflection is an exhibition by Paul Haresign Williams capturing the wide spectrum of reflections around us.

Reflections give us the opportunity to look at ourselves and glimpse the world on multiple planes. Like shadows, reflections are ultimately illusions. Objects and people can enter the realm of the surreal: “who is real in this hall of mirrors”?

Reflections are ephemeral by nature because they are completely dependent on the conditions of light at a particular moment. The object being reflected might remain in place but in an instant its reflection can change or disappear altogether. The lens captures the moment.
