Jennifer Belair

Jennifer Belair

Art Forms: Printmaking, Visual Art

Residency Year: 2017

Lives / Works: Australia

Jennifer Belair is a mixed media artist predominately working two dimensionally. Her work often utilizes print media in conjunction with direct hand drawn imagery and painting techniques. Although Belair works intuitively, Printmaking is integral to her work as it allows for repetition which is a key component of her studio practice and visual story telling techniques. She describes herself as an “imagist” and places specific imagery for its cultural and personal ties. Text has long been a standard of her work as she feels it directs the viewer’s interpretation. Often Belair’s work evolves from specific sub cultures—independent cinema, county folk music and outdated sitcoms to name a few.

Belair worked on her proposed project, “All my heroes are men,” a visual exploration of her personal connection to “masculine” imagery and persons.
