Jazmina Cininas is a Melbourne-based artist, arts writer and curator who lectures in printmaking at RMIT School of Art. She s best known for her technically demanding reduction linocuts and has run several workshops in the medium. For two decades now, Jazmina has been charting the various incarnations of the female werewolf as a vehicle for her printmaking practice. Her PhD research project, completed in 2014, saw her create a Girlie Werewolf Hall of Fame by identifying women from throughout history who may qualify as female werewolves and selecting a number of them to portray as reduction linocut portraits. Since completing her MA in 2002, Jazmina has exhibited her ongoing Girlie Werewolf Project throughout Australia and in Lithuania, and has presented papers on female werewolves at international conferences in Philadelphia, Budapest, Oxford and Manchester. Jazmina’s work is in many public collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria, the Victorian Arts Centre, Broken Hill Regional Gallery and the Alice Springs Art Foundation. Her curatorial projects include Enchanted Forest: New Gothic Storytellers, which toured to significant regional galleries throughout Victoria and NSW between 2008-2009. Jazmina also initiated the RMIT Summer Printmaking Residency programme with the exhibition Pelt in 2004. For the record, Jazmina is not a werewolf.
