Exploring Natures Canvas
Artwork from a local artist at our upgraded Twelve Apostles Lodge
In the heart of the Great Ocean Road at Johanna, nestled among a backdrop of lush green forest, lies our Twelve Apostles lodge – a haven where relaxation, creativity, and nature seamlessly converge. It is the perfect place to rest, restore and connect after a day walking the trails on our Twelve Apostles Signature Walk or Great Ocean Road Long Weekend.
The lodge has recently undergone some exciting upgrades to both the interior and exterior and we are thrilled to introduce the creative brilliance behind three captivating artworks that now reside within the renewed communal space, Tiphaine de Fleurette Hunter-Brown from Floreo Creative.
A little about Tiphaine
Tiph's artistic journey, deeply rooted in her Belizean heritage, has taken her on a global journey spanning from London to Berlin, and now Apollo Bay, where she has been a resident and creative powerhouse for over a decade. Her deep-rooted connection to Apollo Bay and the Great Ocean Road made her the perfect candidate to breathe new life into our lodge through her artwork inspired by iconic destinations on the same coastline.
The Twelve Apostles artwork, aptly named "The Land, She Moves…" captures the dynamic essence of the rugged coastline, inviting guests to embark on a visual journey mirroring our exhilarating coastal walks.
A descriptive poem by Tiph about the piece:
The People Came and the people still Come
The Apostles were here, and now some are gone
The shape of what was once here still lives on
With untouched sands, but desire forming grooves
I follow her, the land she moves.
The other two pieces, Blanket Bay, or "Where the Trees Meet the Water," and Wreck Beach, "The Red Steps," both encapsulate the raw beauty of the landscapes, mirroring the beauty of the natural environment we have preserved at the lodge. As you traverse the same trails, you will discover the untamed beauty that inspired these creations.
