Artist statement: Nina Machielse Hunt

“I have always been intrigued by the Australian landscape, the romance and the spirit of the bush, flora and fauna, Indigenous art and culture. I enjoy learning how others have personally responded to a sense of Place through art, literature, film and song I do love the bush; walking, sitting, thinking, feeling and then returning to my studio to absorb the experience. Then after preparing my materials I work through the challenge of adding and removing colour, shifting shape and line until eventually the final composition reveals itself.”
