Zabet Pucket is an orphic realist and symbolist, working in oil, digital, and mixed media. She was born in Long Beach, California. Aged 17 became protegé to production for Shirl Goedike of Didier Imbert Gallerie, Paris, France, and Adelson Galleries, New York, and Venice, Italy.
Rock climbing Joshua Tree National Park, and exploring San Bernardino and Bear Mountains inspired her to create the 'Two Hundred Million Years in Joshua Tree' series. A series of figurative landscapes spanning the eons, expressing the potential of earthly (California) paradise, and southern California's rich geological and anthropological legacy. Implicating the ghastly consequences of human industry.
Subsuming the contradictory tendencies of the Romantic-Industrial Complex, her series 'Sex with Animals' builds a body of work around investigations of the psycho-sexual identity. Sexual suffering in itself suggests other kinds of oppressive cultural presence. Gestures are suspended before they can declare their purpose: the scene is there to be uncovered by anyone who can find mystery in the anodyne. Brutal violent cruel games, and the paradox of societal pleasure at the misfortune of women.
Her lifetime of work includes Art Director for Auteurs Detournément Symbolon Productions, set design and painting for Welk Resort Theater in Escondido, contributor to Cal State Fullerton 'Business of Art' curriculum, Head of Graphic Design and Branding for Proinsites.com, and Muralist for Camp Pendleton Santa Margarita Hospital.
