by James Hunt

James Hunt, based in Oakland, uses his work to draw attention to the changing nature of the world around us as we make personal shifts to accommodate it. His work, typically on canvas but often in sculptural, photographic, or other formats, tends to feature the tension, change, beauty and harshness that encompasses Oakland drawn from personal and anecdotal experience.
