Equinox Gallery is pleased to present Shawn Hunt: The First Moonrise. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery and the first entirely devoted to painting and works on paper.
The First Moonrise is a continuation of Shawn Hunt’s exploration of Heiltsuk cosmologies through the development of imagined narratives and characters. Hunt’s creatures are constantly in a state of flux, serving as shapeshifters–supernatural figures that move and travel between human and spirit realms. By the glow of a hidden moon, the scenes in Shawn Hunt’s new paintings emerge and come to life.
