Philip Hunter FLATLANDS

Melbourne based artist Philip Hunter discusses with Tracee Hutchison his unique interpretation of and relationship with the Australian landscape. Hunter draws his inspiration from Wimmera, in North – Western Victoria where he grew up.

The Wimmera region plays a special role in Australian Art. Sydney Nolan and Arthur Boyd both produced seminal works based within this region. Hunter’s paintings draw upon a narrative that creates a fusion between Indigenous and European interpretations of the Australian landscape. Hunter has developed a language through his paintings that redefine a relationship to a sense of place.

More recently Hunter has embraced the challenge of responding to the indefinable qualities of the Australian landscape. Hutchinson addresses these concerns at the 2004 Melbourne International Art Fair in the Tim Olsen Gallery Stand.
