Kay Hunter studied at the Canterbury University School of Art under the tutorship of leading New Zealand artists Russell Clark, Rudolph Gopas, Bill Sutton and Ivy Fife. Graduating with Honours in Painting, she focussed largely on landscape, simplifying the geographic forms into a sparse vocabulary of colour and form. Over the last few decades, while retaining elements of landscape, her work has become increasingly expressionistic, focussing on spacial arrangement, structure, a minimal palette and degrees of paint viscosity to achieve quiet but perfectly arranged compositions.
