THE HUNT SERIES (article first published : 2000-02-5)

The Hunt Series, a collection of 12 bronzes by sculptor Maureen Quin, will be taken on a national tour to reach Durban in September where it will be on show at the NSA Galleries.

The exhibition opens at the Eduardo Villa Museum at Pretoria University (March 6 to18) and then moves to Potchefstroom University (March 20 to April 1). Dates for the NSA in Durban are September 3 to 21. From here, itís on to Bloemfontein where it will be displayed at the Oliewenhuis Art Museum (September 26 to October15). During February 2001, it will be shown at the Cuyler Street Gallery in Port Elizabeth.

Maureen Quin has been working on the series over a period of eight years and the works depict a deeply felt emotional response to man's inhumanity to his fellow man, coupled with the continued destruction of his environment. In a booklet, The Hunt, produced by the artist, she recounts her train of thought and the emotions she experienced which led to the production of this series.

The completed series was presented to the public for the first time at the 1999 Standard Bank National Arts Festival In Grahamstown where it was favourably received.
