Artist's Biography

Gwen Gunter’s career encompasses both fine and commercial arts. Her art practice spans representational portraiture and landscapes as well as the geometric minimalism of her current work. A graphic artist, illustrator, photographer and successful entrepreneur, she created a line of functional art items for the home decor, gift and apparel industries. Today Gunter is a full-time painter based near Atlanta, Georgia. She works in acrylic on wood, paper and canvas, most often in series of a dozen or more paintings per collection.
Gunter earned a B.A. from Columbia College with further study at the Atlanta College of Art and Savannah College of Art and Design (Atlanta).

Artist's Statement

My art practice brings a freshness to organic geometric abstraction that pays homage to the forebearers of minimalism and hardedge painting. My shapes are pure yet playful and are energized by curved as well as straight lines that move over and through the composition. Moving to abstraction from objective painting, shapes emerged that brought with them an unexpected vocabulary and meaning. Originally two shapes in opposition, informed by carefully selected color, these shapes have become the impetus for my painting practice.The work continues to evolve as line becomes an increasingly important element in the dialogue.
This series of shape, line and color is developed thru a process of arranging and rearranging the elements until a balance is achieved that both answers an underlying question and poses new queries of relationship and “what if” possibilities. The process is both mystical and deliberate and has become meditative in its execution. The challenge of discovery in all that is possible within these minimalist parameters keeps me engaged and searching.
