Alexis Hunter, artist, born 4 November 1948; died 24 February 2014

I had the pleasure of meeting Alexis on a couple of occasions and always found her integrity and wit striking. A true feminist pioneer, her work, especially from the 1970s, seems radical even now, more than three decades on. The art world has lost a true icon. Heartbreakingly, not even a month after Alexis’ passing, her husband, Baxter, died of a broken heart.
This fitting obituary was written by my own professor, Lynda Morris, who curated Alexis’ 2006 acclaimed solo show, with accompanying book: 'Alexis Hunter: Radical Feminism in the 1970s'. (Well worth a read if you ever have the opportunity… it is still available to purchase!)
