Corrine Hunt

Kwakwaka'wakw / Tlingit
 

Corrine Hunt is a member of the Raven Gwa’wina clan from Ts’akis, a Komoyue village on Vancouver Island.  Her rich family history includes internationally renowned First Nations artists Henry Hunt, Richard Hunt and Tony Hunt, all of whom have been influential on her art.  Uncle Norman Brotchie was also a significant teacher and mentor, introducing Corrine to Kwakwaka’wakw traditions and the art of jewelry-making.   

Born in Alert Bay in 1959, Corrine’s paternal grandmother A’neesla’ga,’ a Tlingit noblewoman from Alaska, gave her the name ‘Killer Whale Scratching Her Back on the Beach’ in 1965.  Since 1985 she has been creating contemporary art that reflects the themes and traditions of her First Nations Komoyue and Tlingit heritage.

Corrine’s work includes engraved gold and silver jewelry and accessories, sculptural installations such as totem poles, and custom furnishings in carved stainless steel and reclaimed wood, executed in a distinctively contemporary style all of her own.  Working with the concept of living culture, Corrine is creating fine art objects that are both aesthetically pleasing and of practical use.  She is interested in exploring unique ways to translate the traditions of her First Nations culture; “I want to show how both the First Nations people and the art have evolved,” she explains.

Corrine designed the logo for the World Peace Forum held in Vancouver, 2006.  There were installations of her work at the Hilton Hotel, Whistler, and the Office for Indian and Northern Affairs Canada.

In 2009 she was a co-creator of the medals for the 2010 Olympic Games held in Vancouver.  These featured her original designs of the Pacific Northwest Coast crest figures of the Killerwhale and Raven.  Corrine’s artistic endeavours were recognized with the National Aboriginal Achievement Award in 2011.  As well as her prolific art practice, Corrine is focused on mentoring First Nations artists and other creative practitioners in this present day, and continues to be a forceful supporter of the creative arts in British Columbia.
