Kirsten Stingle’s sculptures respond to a modern paradox: a wired and globally connected world that creates individual isolation. Working in the genre of narrative ceramics, Kirsten fuses her richly detailed porcelain figures with mixed-media to further our understanding of ourselves, others, and our place within the contemporary world. She strives to reveal human commonalities, exposing layers of both light and shadow that thrive underneath our polite societal veneer. Kirsten also uses antique relics to further the narrative and remind the viewer of the inescapable pull of our shared human history.
