Phillip Buntin

“My thinking is directly influenced by my readings in philosophical hermeneutics and particularly the work of John Caputo and his notions on radical hermeneutics. Both recognize the openness and complexity of our experiences and the later reminds us of the difficulty inherent in all human experience and seeks to encourage remaining driven and open interpretatively while facing up to the mystery of existence and our incomplete understandings.”

“Put simply, I am interested in how we come to terms with complexity and how complex phenomena always, on some level, elude our grasp.  The balance is struck by driving the images to the point of elusiveness, through fragmentation, the degree of complexity, or obfuscation of various sorts. Subsequently, the works are shelved, propped up and leaning against the wall, as a gentle reminder of this provisional nature of understanding.”
