Daniel Hunt is a multi-disciplinary artist working primarily through performance and painting. He has exhibited and presented work in a variety of sites and contexts, including Nottingham Contemporary, Backlit Gallery, Nottingham, Scaffold Gallery, Manchester, Emergency at Z Arts, Manchester, Fierce Festival Birmingham, The International Riverside Festival, Stockton, The Bracknell Gallery, South Hill Park, LIFT Molten Festival, Watch this Space at the National Theatre, and the Whitstable Biennale. He is a Senior Lecturer in Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Lincoln, and a Post-Graduate Researcher at Nottingham Trent University. He is a founder member of 3rd Space Studios, Nottingham and Nott Normal, the Nottingham Accessible Arts Collective.
His 2D work is concerned with exploring the fundamental elements of image making – both the physical nature, properties and potential of materials, and the emotional communicative qualities of the line in a non – representational role. The work explores techniques of layering, revealing and obscuring imagery, colour relationships, and the potential for an abstract language to provoke an emotional response through the use of repetition and a minimalist aesthetic.
