Visual Artist and Educator
Natalie Hunter was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario. Her work extends across photography, sculpture, installation, drawing, and video. Throughout her art practice she explores the poetics of time, chance, perception, light, motion, and memory through multilayered and experiential photo-based installations on transparent film. Her evocative installations composed of image and sculpture create contemplative spaces and experiential encounters that become poetic meditations on the act of making, the fragility of memory, and our relationships with the material and immaterial worlds we exist in.
She holds an MFA from the University of Waterloo, and a BA in Visual Art with a Concentration in Curatorial Studies from Brock University. She has shown her work in numerous exhibitions, including: the Hamilton Supercrawl, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, University of Waterloo Art Gallery, Rodman Hall Arts Centre, the Art Gallery of Windsor, Centre 3 for artistic + social practice, Factory Media Centre, Latcham Art Centre, and Museum London among others. She is the recipient of several awards including Ontario Arts Council Visual Artists Creation Project Grants, and Canada Council for the Arts Research and Creation Grants. She lives and works in Hamilton, and teaches sessionally at the University of Waterloo.
