About the artist

Jennifer Allnutt is an artist based in Adelaide, Australia. Art has been a pivotal part of her life since childhood nurtured by her grandfather, but it was in 2007 as a teenager, when she first discovered her love for oil painting and since then she hasn’t been able to put her paintbrush down.  She graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (First Class Honours) in 2011. Furthermore, she has a Master of Teaching (UniSA 2016). Jennifer has exhibited her work extensively throughout Australia as well as New Zealand and the United States.

Artwork Themes & Subject Matter

Jennifer Allnutt constructs images which straddle the line between realism and illusionism. In her surrealistic portraits she explores the uncanny, the unconscious mind, transformation and identity. Her works often grapple to find a way to visually express feelings and desires that we repress. Finding inspiration in dreams, mythology, poetry, personal experiences and conversations; Jennifer creates portraits that operate as carriers for her musings. There is unquestionably a drive in her work to tell a story or weave an ambiguous narrative. This is found by the subtle hints in symbolic objects, clothing, facial expressions or even a small gesture. She uses juxtaposition to consider divisions between the mind/body, man/nature and reality/representation. The works themselves are often figures or busts, seemingly suspended in time with symbolic, surrealistic interventions.
