Philip Hunter's landscape drawings and paintings are unique and bold, demonstrating his superb draughtsmanship and technical skill. Drawing inspiration from the Wimmera in North Western Victoria where he grew up, Hunter creates paintings that highlight his highly idosyncratic notion of landscape. His golden hues of grasslands and atmospheric images of dust and smoke are well-recognised as part of his distinctive visual language. 
 
Over the past decade, Hunter has been working on a series of images that he collectively refers to as The Flatlands Project. This project explores what the landscape is, and what it means to him. He explains that he has 'looked at the shaping influence of wind and water on the Australian continent, the once present but now absent inland sea, the impact of ENSO (El Nino Southern Oscillation), soil migration, dry land salinity, agricultural cycles and even the movement of animals, birds and machinery through and above the landscape'. These influences have given Hunter 'certain amounts of information and impetus to bring to the daily practice of painting. The core idea has been the prospect of making paintings, prints and drawings about places, districts and events that aren't so easily quantified or pictured.'
 
Philip Hunter was born in the Wimmera district at Donald in 1958. He attended the Prahran College of Advanced Education from 1977 until 1979, then graduated with a Master of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1995, before completing a Doctor of Philosophy at Deakin University in 1999. He has taught painting and drawing at a number of the nation's most prominent art schools, and has been the recipient of numerous awards and scholarships. Based in Melbourne, Hunter has exhibited widely throughout Australia and internationally. His work is held in major public, private and corporate collections throughout Australia including Artbank, Bendigo Art Gallery, the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, Macquarie Bank Collection, RACV Collection and Heide Museum of Modern Art.

Vale Philip Hunter

It is with great sadness that the gallery announces the recent death of Philip Hunter. Born in 1958 in Donald in the Wimmera region of north west Victoria, Philip explored and defined a contemporary and unique view of the Australian landscape. His interests across a broad range of subjects, including architecture, music, philosophy, literature, geology and ecology continually fed his appetite for drawing and painting his natural surroundings and just how we might conceptualise those ideas. His work is held in many prominent public, private and corporate collections. Philip was an inspiring friend, teacher and colleague to many and will be greatly missed. Photo by Julian Kingma.
