DOWN THE GARDEN PATH

Group, Corner Stone Collage, August 2019

Coorong based environmental artist Phoebe Hunter uses a variety of natural materials including native flora, florist waste, natural fibres, wood and raw pigments in her art practice. This body of work responds to the lake that dried and filled, a stance by nature to show its ability to regenerate.
"Movement is medicine, movement on canvas, movement in music, movement in dance, movement in culture, it unites us. It's by no coincidence that we feel a sense of peace when we are in nature, we are, after all, just that”.

'SUSTAIN'

Solo, Mettal Sol, August 2019

Sustainability is about recognition of the supportive role each of us plays in a group setting. Each decision has an impact and tells the story of who we are. For example, choosing to opt-out of synthetic living, out of thinking we are singular. 

Movement is medicine, movement on canvas, movement in music, movement in dance, movement in culture, movement in poetry, it unites us. 


Environmental artist Phoebe Hunter creates work using natural materials such as leaves, flowers, wood and raw pigments. This body of work was partly inspired by the Pangarinda Botanic Gardens in the South East of the State. The gardens have an area of regenerated vegetation that shows what the eco-system would have looked like prior to colonisation. Its glimpses of these regeneration projects (run predominantly by enthused volunteers) that evokes us. It's by no coincidence that we feel a sense of peace when we are in nature, we are, after all, nature.

Allow us to introduce you to HunterMade, your new favourite fashion label. Ethical, sustainable and local, each unique garment is plant-dyed by creator of the label, Phoebe Hunter.

 Phoebe says she’s always had an affinity for her creative side; “I first started making textiles quite young, my mother kept a huge variety of vintage fabrics from my great grandmother and sometimes I was allowed to use them.” Phoebe’s early exposure to these fabrics still impacts her work to this day; “those materials were made to last, something that I want to carry forward with my practice.”
