Jennifer Allnutt is an Australian artist based in Melbourne who creates surrealist pictures that oscillate between realism and illusionism. She has created an interesting and unusual project in which she paints human eyes on found stones and returns them to the same place they were before.
On a recent residency with Q Bank Gallery in Queenstown, Tasmania, I began a project of transforming collected rocks into painted eyes and returning them to the landscape to be found or lost forever. Queenstown has an extensive mining history and there were many unusual rocks everywhere. So I began a collection and what started as something for myself grew into a treasure hunt/community art project.Jennifer Allnutt
