  • Originally measuring 1900x1100mm and painted in acrylic on wood panel, Garden Down In Hades explores Man's relationship with nature, and the many faces of the desert. Through a prolonged time in the painting process, I became interested in the way people perceive colour and space, which can be wide-ranging and impactful on the individual psyche. The name of the work came from a D H Lawrence novel set in Mexico, an excerpt I found particularly transportive, in a truly visceral way.

    Priscilla Hunter is an artist and jewellery maker based in Auckland, and has recently completed her MFA at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design. She has been greatly influenced by her travel experiences, where she explored parts of the Americas, Northern Africa and Europe. Her current practice involves creating precise, overly saturated paintings and soft sculptural fabric works. The work is made with the desire to create a reflection of desert. The simulated desert landscape is inspired by reality on varying levels, but ultimately doesn't exist in the physical world; instead it is a construct, built from a lifetime of gathered knowledge and imagery of desert that isn't really a desert at all, like a mirage, it's more of a figment of the imagination.
