Saskia Bunce-Rath is a graduate of the Masters of Fine Arts programme at the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts. As an artist and poet, she explores mood and quasi-narratives through her depictions of ethereal creatures wandering in imagined lands. She mixes text and painterly compositions to further deepen her unearthly atmospheres. Texture, surreality and definition is built into her works through a bright use of textiles and thread.
