Hunter Reynolds has his roots in Los Angeles. As a runaway gay teenager, he escaped to LA in 1975 at the age of 15. He experienced 1970s West Hollywood, attended the Fashion Institute Design and Merchandising, and graduated from the Otis Parsons School of Art and Design in 1984.
Reynolds notes, “I could not have survived that journey which as you can imagine was filled with difficult obstacles and amazing stories. It was the new Gay and Lesbian Services Center which had just opened and the many gay men I had met of the 70’s who helped to mentor me through that difficult time, and I owe them and their spirits eternal gratitude.”
His pieces, “Healing Hands Flying With Patina du Prey” and “Healing Hands on the Beach” represent that gratitude and is currently on display at The Artist Tree. (Gold hands photographed by George Lyter. Patina du Prey photographed by Michael Wakefield.)
