Art Opening Reception | HUNT SLONEM

Madelyn Jordon Fine Art is delighted to present A MENAGERIE OF WONDERS, a solo exhibition of new paintings by HUNT SLONEM. The exhibition will run from October 25 – December 7, 2019, with an opening reception and book signing on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. This is Slonem’s second solo exhibition with the gallery and the public is welcome to attend and meet the artist.

A MENAGERIE OF WONDERS will debut 15 of Hunt Slonem’s newest paintings on subjects for which he is best known – bunnies, butterflies, and tropical birds.  As an artist who has fashioned a distinctive, neo-expressionist style over a stellar 40-year career, Slonem continues to evolve his artistic practice, keeping his work fresh and on trend, while remaining true to his artistic roots.

Depicting his signature motifs of repeating whimsical animal imagery and fauna, Slonem’s ongoing experimentation with unconventional methodologies and materials, such as diamond dust and resin, provide the perfect conduit to express his artistic vision as an abstract painter of living things in nature.  As stated by Slonem “Unlike a lot of contemporary art which is political or shocking or jarring, mine is non-judgmental. I’m exhilarated by nature, including birds, plants and butterfly forms that most people don’t even know exist.” Additionally, included in this exhibition, the gallery will feature an acrylic and aluminum ‘bunnies’ sculpture for the first time.

Since 1977, Slonem has had over 250 solo exhibitions at prestigious galleries.  Museums, both domestic and international, have collected his work, among them Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Whitney, the Miro Foundation, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Slonem’s work has also been the subject of many books over the course of his career including: Birds (Glitterati Inc., 2017), Bunnies (Glitterari Inc., 2014), The Worlds of Hunt Slonem (Vendome Press, 2011),  Pleasure Palaces: The Art and Homes of Hunt Slonem (powerHouse Books, 2007), and Hunt Slonem: An Art Rich & Strange (Abrams Books, 2002).

We’ll have wine, light bites and good conversation. Join us and bring your friends.
