I have recently discovered the work of an amazingly talented Australian artist, Todd Hunter, whose art I have completely fallen in love with . Through his work, Todd “has taken the colours and shapes of the natural world and put them through the blender of his fecund imagination. He evokes the essence of a landscape without resorting to the banalities of the literal”.
“There is simultaneously a gentle lyricism and a violent cacophony occurring in these paintings, as though he is capturing the shifting seasons, the movement of light, the pulse of the breeze through some system of time-lapse capture. The paint is applied with an energy that reflects the winds, the tides and the power of light, swirling us into his almost hallucinogenic world”
As always, art is in the eye of the beholder (my husband is not a fan) However, I simply adore these paintings in particular 2/4 which have all unfortunately sold. I will definitely be keeping my eye on this artist for future works….
