Working across mediums and disciplines, Michael John Hunter investigates the question of real and imaginary, moral and ethical as well as perception and presumptions. Installing hyper-realistic sculptures in real-life locations, he challenges the absurdity of today’s value.
The artist creates enormous highly detailed replicas of children’s toys, installing and photographing them at night. Using his ‘fake macro photography’ technique, the hand-sculpted enlarged objects question how imagery can manipulate our view of the world.
Hunter studied Fine Art Photography at The University of Edinburgh and now works within the film industry. The artist currently lives and works in London.
