Theresa Hunt’s strong empathy for our land comes forth on her canvas. Says Hunt: “When I stand in the landscape or by the ocean, looking out into its enormity, its beauty engulfs me. I can’t drag myself away. This connection is so all-encompassing that it physically feels as if it’s wrapped around me, and I could stay there forever.
“When the bushfires came I took refuge near the waves, and at the same time was drawn back into the bush – part of me was devastated along with the landscape, and I had to be out in it, looking over it, feeling it. Seeing the incredible Blue Mountains, with their layers of rock and smoke and char and eucalyptus, that continued to the hazy horizon, I knew I had to paint it. It was so very sad, so unbelievable. Now the cycle of regeneration and hope has sprung up, but it’s still so raw.”
