Kirsten takes a surreal approach in exploring the anatomy of humans and animals in A Hoary Fiction. Concepts regarding both subjects are present in oil paintings of the human figure melting away alongside sculptures of expressive human faces on the bodies of taxidermy birds such as grouse, flycatchers, and hawks. Taxidermy is a frequently used medium within her casted resin sculptures to create an organic flow to the artwork. All of the pieces from this collection have a good sense of humor and push the ‘expected’ limits, in all directions.
