Paintings and Drawings by Kirsty Whiten

August 29, 2013

This morning we take a look at the work of Kirsty Whiten. Kirsty initially gained notice for her large-scale portrait paintings and photorealistic drawings but her work has diversified in recent years to include sculpture and photography. Kirsty was profiled in June 2009 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine where she commented on her fascination with the "psychological power that women have over men" and how the 'dominance within relationships is something that's taken and given, in a quite a fragile way. It's very sophisticated but very fragile at the same time."

"I'm completely fascinated by why people behave the way they behave and what seems so simple on the surface has layers and layers of subtleties beneath."
