Theresa Hunt's works of art are the result of real happenings and lived feelings, such as those that marked the three years she spent in the Tuscan hills together with her family. The artist, who now lives in Sydney, believes that every stroke and application of color is an an inseparable combination of her intimate expressiveness, personal experiences and passion for painting. In her own words on the occasion of her last exhibition If the Stars Were Mine, "It is a collection of impressions and wonders inspired by the natural world, memories and evocations of my life." Her approach reminds us how for many it is easier to read and express feelings and emotions through the power of art which is able to say everything without words."
Theresa's talent is an invitation to slow down, to observe and connect with one's emotions in a deep and contemplative way. Her painting is a timeless journey that lands in an oasis of stillness that shuns the chaotic world, allowing viewers to feel an inner relief, stimulating them to think about life in another way. Moreover, the artist adds, "We all have moments when the natural world stirrs deep emotions in us." These are moments when we are consciously moved by a landscape, but also aware that the feeling exists just beyond our comprehension. While the Tuscan hills have remained etched in her memory and heart, the artist has continued to exhibit throughout Australia, participating in prestigious awards such as The Mosman Art Prize, The Kings School Art Prize, The Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize, and Hunter's Hill Art Prize. In an age flooded with information, constant overpowering stimuli, Theresa Hunt's art is certainly a shelter, a place of peace, a hope where humanity can continue to be.
