Jennifer Buntine

'Graduating from VCA in 2004, I continue my art practice in Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula.

This pastoral landscape around me creates the perfect stage setting for exploring the creative possibilities of printmaking and ceramics.
Working figuratively, I explore identity and have a particular focus on the human need for connection to others and the environment they inhabit, the recognition of being one and forming a new greater whole.

My printmaking is influenced by the way geography and history retain the human memory creating a narrative that exists within the physical, be it a figure or the landscape.

I find inspiration in narratives, performance and historic customs we practice to give meaning to our lives and to the present. The ritual of performance is an ephemeral moment whether it be in the form of an intentional constructed artwork or an unintentional human interaction. My intention is often to capture the fleeting essence of figurative movement using the figures energy and life force as a metaphor for human identity and transience.'
