Kirsty Greenwood // http://www.kirstygreenwood.co.uk

With the advantage of an illustrative mind-set, ever the quixotic painter, illustrator, sculptor and seamstress, Kirsty is motivated by ephemeral visual misunderstanding, transient half-light, ocular strangeness, nightmares, dreams and fleeting glimpses of unreality.
Inspired by Faerie tales, myths and legends, ailuroanthropy, naturel science, Alice-syndrome and transformations, childhood memories, ghost stories, naiveté and true romanticism, her idiosyncratic work often has its roots in dreamlike non-realities which create Art contained by the renovating of these ideas into images which often convey the feelings of otherworldly states .
Using photography and print to produce imageries which she then works on using a single starting point to create a multitude of works in various materials and media, Kirsty likes to work intricately to produce detailed phantasmagorias and unusual scenarios or beings representing the worlds of both traditional and modern stories: Demons, Fays and Gods prevalent in folklore, legend and religions from around the world.
Kirsty lives in the Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate, heavily influenced by the rural Dales landscape she grew up in, literature, music and Art of all kinds.
