The Hunter and the Hunted
In these two paintings, which were part of the "Human Nature" exhibition, I point out two aspects of the intuitive side within us. The human animal - as we are one species among all species. The conscious world of the hunter and the subconscious dream world of the hunted.
As riders of snow, water and dirt, our connection to the earth is strong. We who live outside understand clearly that this planet is in a state of emergency. For Asymbol artist Iuna Tinta, it’s the radical changes she's witnessed in her beloved Swiss mountains that give cause for alarm. From bi-polar winters to rapidly-melting glaciers in bare mountains that once held summer snow, Iuna’s inspiration is drawn from landscapes that are actively transforming around her.
By shining a light on the beauty of what we have and heartbreak of what we're losing, Iuna Tinta’s art heralds a thundering call-to-action. No longer is it okay to sit idle while the world around us sounds its alarm bells. This is an emergency.

Iuna Tinta is a Swiss artist working in Berlin, Germany. She earned her B.A. from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Lucerne in 2009. Her paintings have been exhibited in several international solo and group shows and her work is frequently being featured within the snowsports industry. Iuna Tinta’s modern mountainscapes and native iconography are influenced by numerous years in Central America and the Pacific North West Coast. However, it is her own roots, the traditional folk art and the Swiss landscapes, that has shaped her artistic style the most.
