Heidi Hunter's Labour of Love
|from Heidi's sketchbook|
The Bowerbird is about love, longing and desire. With Proutopia, I am welcoming people to my home and my creative space. When I first heard New York artist Gigi Chen talk about how her creativity flourished under the Bowerbird’s spell, she spoke directly to my heart. Its birdsong resonated with my own heartsong. This was the inspiration for Birds of a Feather.I don’t believe you can choose and buy art as if you were at a drive-through. You come to Proutopia, you stroll around the market booths. You might walk in the woods or sit and enjoy some music and a butter tart. You meet with the artists, you look across the way at something special and say: Yes. That’s the perfect thing I’ve been looking for.
