Description

The Australian painter Todd Hunter (b. 1972 Brisbane) now lives and works in Byron Bay, Australia. Neither the strokes nor the palette of Todd Hunter's paintings are decidedly jagged or harsh, yet they are not smooth. There is a power and "edginess" made possible by very energetic and robust brush strokes.

His studies were in Australia, first at Griffith University in Brisbane Visual Arts in 1992, for which he received several awards. While studying for his BA, he also studied at the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney in 1990. His artwork is in collections, mainly in Australia, such as ArtBank, Art Gallery of NSW, Griffith University Art Gallery, The Julian Ashton Art School Collection and The QCL Collection in Queensland. The Swiss and Australian embassies in Bangkok also have Hunter's work in their collections.

My studio is never quiet, everything is accompanied by music. It affects my work intimately. Almost all my titles come from lyrics or song titles that have influenced that particular work and the psychological overtones the music creates permeate the works. It changes with each painting. It is autobiographical, reflected in the image, becomes my mixtape, the soundtrack to my life.

NADINE "NASCH" SCHJÖLIN

A TRIBUTE TO THE FREE CREATION

For Nadine Nasch Schjölin, painting is about letting go, being in the present, following your impulses and just existing. The paintings reflect her way of seeing; looking inward to reflect the outside world. It should be free, playful, open, undemanding, and colorful. Nadine believes that the power of creativity is our main ability. It works on so many levels and has no limitations. It is the process from thought to idea to physical work. It is healing, like entering another world where anything is possible. She loves being there and just breathes in the love.

BATTLE AGAINST PASSIVIZING PERFECTIONISM

Many of Nadine's paintings are so free that we can both look at and hang them in different directions. She wants there to be space for the viewer to feel in and dream away for themselves.

The paintings are like mirrors and give unique answers to each person who looks at them. There is no right or wrong, no requirements for what to feel or experience, it just is, and it is beautiful. Nadine's way of creating has grown out of a protest against inner perfectionism

"My way of creating and being grew out of a protest against my inner perfectionist, when I was a child, I loved to draw realistically, a direct reflection of what I saw in the smallest detail. If it didn't turn out as I had planned, I threw the piece. Overly dramatic, I couldn't appreciate what was and I only saw the mistakes. When I think back, I laugh at the little me and yet she is still there. I have learned to see the whole thing, appreciate everything that becomes. I'm drawn towards contrasts, light and dark, when colors lift each other and interact into a beautiful dynamic, that's a bit how I live, I love change, movement is what makes me grow and expand, find a balance in it."

"It is not intended that we should limit ourselves, put up walls, relate to some conclusion that the past has created. I try to erase my own limited thoughts, sometimes I fall there but I trust that force within me, which bubbles and takes me forward, which gives nourishment and peace.”

- Nadine Nasch Schjölin

THE COURAGE TO FOLLOW YOUR INTERNAL COMPASS

That who's odd, stands out and goes its own way is close to Nadine's heart. She has always loved to challenge herself and push the boundaries. As a child, she wanted to be the best at everything from skating to dancing, singing, and creating.

"I can't see myself doing anything other than art. It has always been there very naturally from childhood as I was raised in an artistic family. I have seen my mother Åsa Eriksson paint since I was a little baby, just as now my own little ones have been allowed to join the studio."
