His abstract paintings are characterized by a lack of color but are instead full of energy and interpretation. His works feature translucent forms with only hints of substance and color that bring his stories to life in a captivating way.

Newel Hunter’s style is characterized by a unique mix of gestural mark-making, energized forms, and a subtle yet powerful use of muted colors. His work often conveys stories of beauty and strength, exploring universal themes. His paintings can be described as gestural, exhilarating, and interpretative.

His art requires his entire body to move, creating a powerful connection between his gesture and the canvas. Hunter’s bold gestural marks create a dynamic tension that lends an exhilarating atmosphere to his works. These gestural marks are imbued with his signature storytelling style, allowing viewers to get lost in a world of abstract movement and emotion.

Gestural mark-making is an art form that uses abstract forms and expressive strokes. Gestural marks are generally made with quick brushstrokes or other mark-making tools, and they represent the artist’s response to the moment rather than a predetermined outcome. The marks are often used in combination with muted colors to create a unique atmosphere. Hunter’s gestural mark-making style can be seen in many of his works.

Newel Hunter’s unique creative process allows him to express his artistic visions by utilizing non-traditional tools that he creates himself to develop compositions that capture the energy and emotion of the moment. His intuitive and meditative approach gives his work greater freedom of expression, allowing him to express his ideas in a captivating and meaningful way.

“Hooked” Acrylic on Canvas by Newel Hunter.

“His works Half Moon Rising,” “Hooked,” and “Neither Here Nor There” are part of his series of “Tales of Dark and Light.” Half Moon Rising is a captivating work that shows the ebb and flow of light, while Hooked is a lyrical painting with sweeping strokes and transparent washes of color. “Neither Here Nor There” showcases intertwined shapes, exploring themes of displacement and the unknown. These pieces illustrate Hunter’s skillful ability to transform gestural marks into dynamic and meaningful works of art.
