Shirley Hunter

Shirley’s work focuses on themes of connection, loss and memory. She is interested in the passage of time and what is left behind after separation or death. The people we engage with all bear witness to our existence and we theirs, imprinting upon each other, leaving behind traces that awaken and preserve memory.

In this series, Together, Apart, woodcutting has been deployed to create images that are suggestive of gestation, birth, separation and memory.

A self-taught maker from a young age, Hunter has completed the Advanced Textile Course, FineArt Course and Advanced Print Course at City Literature Institute.
