Canadian painter Misha Hunter examines the conflict of existential thought in a material world. His scenes explore sentimental spaces and moments that deal with the never-ending search of purpose in a life that inevitably ends. Hunter paints the objects that collect us in a society that tells us that success is garnished from physically wealthy ambitions. The artist's experiences with trauma, addiction, and anxiety inform his search for connections in the unknown, finding parallels between spirituality and materiality. These links culminate at ghosts in the garden, a corner of the room, or a mundane micro-environment of a shop. His work is questioning the classic chicken and egg question, is it the objects we create that shape our environment or is it the environment that shapes our objects, and what does either have to do with the human psyche.
Framing: In order to ensure the most economical shipping and environmental cost, we send our art to the customer unframed. However, for the best presentation of the bus panels we suggest it is framed upon arrival. We advise that the piece floats in a the middle of a black frame without glass, hung at eye level.
Popcorn bidding: If a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional five minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.
VAT: Standard rate item. VAT @ 20% added to bid (hammer) price if the winning bidder is based in the UK or Europe. A buyer's invoice will show the hammer price (bid price) of the lots bought and VAT will be charged separately.
