Hunt Rettig’s work sits at the nexus of installation, sculpture, and painting—a visual and conceptual experiment in pushing limits and cultivating wonder. Each of Rettig’s assemblages is animated by a particular cadence, the baseline for which is a sublime furling and unfurling of curvilinear forms. To achieve these original constructions, Rettig brings together a collection of materials — polyester films, synthetic rubbers, moldable plastics, and acrylic paints — in unexpected ways.

Rettig’s process and priorities as an artist echo his larger worldview. He notes that what we know about our universe is only a fraction of what there is to know. It's in our awareness of our not knowing, however, that we can start to see that anything is possible - a galvanizing force for creation. With the limits undefined, what we can achieve or reach is only obstructed by narratives that we alone author.

He to whom Nature

begins to reveal

her open secret

will feel an irresistible yearning

for her most worthy interpreter, 

Art.
