Art exhibit at the Côte Saint-Luc library features New York-based painter Paul Hunter

Luminous paintings by New York-based artist Paul Hunter are on display at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library from July 31 to September 21, 2014.

Hunter will also discuss his work and what inspires him on July 31 at 7 pm at a Meet the Artist event at the Library. This event is free of charge. Refreshments will be served.

The New York Reflections art exhibit features contemporary original abstract and minimal cityscapes using gold and metal leaf in combination with acrylic paint applied on canvas.

“I've perfected a method of applying gold, bronze and other metal leaf into his canvases, having spent many years pursuing techniques that produce a radiant effect in my work,” Hunter said. “The result is an overall luminescence that deserves to be seen in person.”

Born and raised in Quebec City, Hunter was exposed to art at an early age.  His father taught sculpture at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts and both his parents are artists. Hunter obtained his MFA in Montreal and currently lives and works in New York City. His art has been shown both in solo and group exhibits in North America, Europe, Asia and the United Arab Emirates.
