A modernist landscape painter born in the Wimmera in 1958.

Philip Hunter, best known for his work as a painter while also a printmaker, was born in the Wimmera in 1958.

An easel given to Hunter as a gift from his grandfather had sparked his interest in art and Hunter later joined the drawing department at the (then) Prahan College of Advanced Education in 1977, where an artists-in-residency program enabled Hunter to meet international artists such as Kenneth Nolan, Carl Andre, Patrick Caulfield and John Walker. It was through the support of Walker that Hunter was introduced to the art dealer David Rosenthal, who was a partner in Axiom Galleries (later Christine Abrahams Gallery) in Richmond. Hunter’s first exhibition was to be held at Axiom in 1982 alongside Walker as well as the artist Phillip Guston. In the same year, Hunter was included in a major survey of young Melbourne painters at the Monash University Gallery that was curated by Memory Holloway. Due to his work in this exhibition, Hunter received the Ansett Art Award and he was selected for the Australian Perspecta early the following year. Ever since Hunter first exhibited in 1982, he has participated in a long list of solo and group exhibitions. Notably in 1984, Memory Holloway selected Hunter for inclusion in ‘The Australians’ exhibition at C.D.S. Gallery in New York City, where his work appeared alongside that of artists ...
