Alix Hunter

Alix Hunter is a painter from Melbourne.
Alix's paintings explore the collected objects and organic form of the everyday. She is interested in drawing and observational realism but looks to perceptual painting and the relationship between the visual and sensory experience.

Alix says “I like to observe the beauty and intrigue of the objects around me, playing with composition and light. Working from life, I enjoy the tensions and harmonies of shapes and textures, tonality and colour relationships. Fundamentally though I am most interested in oil paint itself. I paint what I feel a connection to but it's the qualities of oil pigment, it's application and it's materiality that
drives my interest in painting.”
