‘Interacting with the Hidden and Adoring the Natural World.’
Phoebe Katherine Hunter, BFA, Canada.
Phoebe revels in the layering of illuminated light, evoking an abstract fluidity of form that serves to transcend the material world and cast poetry on her natural environment. The subjects and patterns she captures inspire ‘make believe’ with the sensations of a mystical dream that is alive in Phoebe’s most inner voice.
“My favorite times of day are dawn and twilight. I love surrealism, nature, and the re-imagined fairy tale.”
Phoebe Katherine Hunter holds a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts with a Major in Drawing and Painting, and a Minor in Art History from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University in Halifax.
During her time at NSCAD University her historical subjects of interest were Art of the Garden, Medieval Art, Egyptian Art, and the History of Photography and Film. Phoebe Hunter received honors in Drawing and Painting, while she also explored Video Art, Performance, Collage, Installation, Printmaking, and Sculpture.
Phoebe currently lives in a historical village and cultural center called Métis Crossing where for the past five years she has been a resident artist, gardener, and wild-crafter. Her passion for folk herbalism has taken her to develop programs for tourists and school groups at Métis Crossing. As well, it is fueling her inspiration and blossoming her daily art practices. All of Phoebe’s work is derived from original sources and personal photographs.
