Kirstin creates immersive environments by combining and manipulating unconventional materials such as fire ash, bush debris, found wood and clothing; materials that have been left behind. Her large scale paintings originate from her fascination with the epic forces that occur in the natural world. All her work revolves around her concern for environmental and human crisis and the redemption found in transforming our losses. Her landscapes act as a giant mirror, seducing us to reconnect with our emotional selves, to each other, and to the planet.
Kirstin has exhibited extensively in Australia and internationally with her work being held in major collections such as the NGV, Parliament House Art Collection (Canberra), Artbank and private collections in Australia, Europe and the USA.
She currently lives and works between Byron Australia and Berlin Germany and is represented by Studio Gallery Group Melbourne and Sydney.
