Natalie Hunter

Natalie Hunter is a Canadian artist who grew up in Hamilton, Ontario. Her practice is concerned with the transformation of materials, objects, and images in ways that evoke an emotive or psychological response in the viewer.

In her installations, photographs, and sculptures, Hunter challenges the boundaries between mental and physical spaces, time and memory, material and immaterial, light and motion, presence and absence. Hunter often produces experiential installations using photographs on transparent film, light, and other fragile materials that engage with the poetics of time, memory, the archive, perception, and the senses.

She holds an Masters of Fine Art from the University of Waterloo, and a Bachelor of Art in Visual Art with a Concentration in Curatorial Studies from Brock University (First Class Standing). She is the recipient of several awards including an Ontario Arts Council Visual Artists Creation Project Grant for Emerging Artists and the Keith and Winifred Shantz Internship Grant, among others. Her work as been shown in Canada and the United States in numerous exhibitions.
