Kirsty Smith | Shetland |Artist

The relationship between everyday life and place, as well as its ongoing transformation and evolution, constitutes the central interest of Kirsty Smith's art. The artwork explores the transformation of inhabited and industrialized space and its encroachment onto the seemingly uninhabited scattald/hill land. Sculptures, objects and drawings are developed from a practical and observed engagement with the environment and working material. With this openness to the process, her work finds new possibilities of coexisting and connection, while exploring how our presence can affect our home.
