Of his sculpture Forms Carried Aloft, the artist said, "I wanted to give an impression of forms being lifted and projected upward by the rod rising from the base, which I think of as a kind of energized line, partly a stem and in part a trajectory."
Hunt does not model or carve. Rather, this early work can be understood as a drawing in space. Using a torch as his pencil with which he achieves control over the material, Hunt created a lofty composition that speaks as much of fragility as of dynamism and vitality.
