Brit Bunkley

b. 1955

Brit Bunkley is a New Zealand-based artist whose art practice includes the proposal and construction of large scale outdoor sculptures, discrete objects, installations as well as the creation of 'impossible' moving and still images and architecture designed using computer 3D modelling, video editing and image editing programs. His work explores an oblique sense of paranoid apocalyptic fear tempered with a sense of whimsy and irony.
