Alix Hunter is an Australian painter based in Melbourne. She paints small moments, exploring dualities such as translucency and opacity, light and shadow as well as the wild and the domestic.
She works in oils from direct observation and is drawn by texture, colour and tone.
Hunter has a great love for the Australian bush, these paintings pay tribute to the bizarre beauty and the idiosyncrasies of bush flora. Hunter is interested in the grace and the majesty of the bush she draws inspiration from but also the many layers within it.
Hunter’s work explores and celebrates space, harmony and simplicity. The paintings are markers of moments, poetic and evocative.
