2022 Dina Baker Award recipient Michele Hundt’s recent paintings were inspired by her observation of the cypress swamp in the Palm Beach Polo Club. Contemplating this natural area, she worked to imbue the paintings with her emotional vision. Hundt says that “this was a dark, wet, and—in many ways—inscrutable place. It’s a black swamp: the sun lights up the trees, but it cannot penetrate the water.” In another series of paintings called Marsh Motions, the artist depicts the trees that have migrated from swamp to sand. All of the paintings within this exhibition are based on her emotional observation of landscapes and symbolize her vision of the world today.
