Jen Cuthbert is an artist based in Tasmania, who works in a range of media.

She has developed an alternate method of viewing narrative in pictorial art. Rather than viewing an image as a fixed moment in time in a linear narrative, she proposes that we start to view narrative in painting in terms of spatial narrative and as an ever shifting experience.

B.1981, Sydney
