Lisa A. Bunch Thierry Bonneville, Media Director July 13, 2014 1840 GENRE Fine Art Photography ARTIST STATEMENT Lisa A. Bunch is an artist whose primary medium is fine-art photography.

She received her M.F.A. in Visual Art in 2009. Her work has been described as following in the traditions of Surrealism; its magic is produced in broad daylight, making manifest our dreams in the tradition shared by American image-makers and writers as diverse as Robert & Shana ParkeHarrison, Gregory Crewdson, David Lynch and Stephen King. She offers these images to the viewer as an opportunity to see quotidian moments as an occasion for assessment, possibility and wonder.

[ click here ] PORTFOLIO ABOUT “PANORAMA” GROUPING Still beneath the garden incubating essential language, while old texts wreak havoc with our senses . . . Collectively, these narratives both influence and limit our perceptions, for they position us as distinctly divided subjects within this process we call life. Are we ready to become panoramic? “Vigil” “Persona” “Ritual” “Pilgrimage” “Clearing” “Dawn” ABOUT “DREAMSCAPES” GROUPING Following in line with traditional practices of Surrealism, these images reference dreamscapes brought to light in an attempt to “rupture the symbolic” through metaphor, myth making and symbolism. These images informed the “Panorama” series and could be seen as an addendum to that work. “Domicile” “Incantatory” “Unplugged” “Language” “Gesturing” “Safety Net” “Two Minds” “Nesting” “Mapping” “Council” “Sources” “Confluence” “Reflectances” “Mirador” “Wonderland” ABOUT “A SENSE OF PLACE” GROUPING “The land was ours before we were the land’s.” –Robert Frost The Gift Outright Rebecca Solnit reminds us that our “sense of place” is like a sixth sense congruent to an “internal compass and map” which arises from the combination of memory and spatial perception. The first piece is an assemblage for “Corrugation Nation” that serves as an introduction of my sense of the packaging of the American Dream. These images represent the beginning of an extended project to explore that sense via the midcoast region and the western mountains of Maine. This exploration is taken in the spirit of Robert Stegner’s astute recognition that, “only in the act of submission is the sense of place realized and a sustainable relationship between people and earth established.” ” Shangri-La” “Scavenging” “Sentries” “Traceability” “Sanctuary” “A Quiet Beauty” “Orange Cat” “Hoof Man” “Reminiscent” ” Cyclical Evidence” “Tracking” “Equinox” Saplings “Signs” “Transcience” “Intertwined” “Degenerate” “Lone Wolf” “Boundary” ” Leftovers” “Wetland Blues” “Sheltering” “Bearing Fruit” “Packaging” (Interior) “Packaging” (Exterior) CONTACT INFORMATION Lisa A.
