do or do not; there is no try
I'm Kirsten, I'm 20, and I spend too much time thinking and reading. I can't imagine a car drive or shower without singing my heart out. I love learning about people and places, and my biggest dream is to travel the world. Feel free to ask me anything, or just chat.

The Beauty in the Banal

There is something sacred in the profane, something beautiful and lasting in the fleeting moment of forgotten things that get thrown away or left behind. My paintings are inspired from macro photographs of decaying objects found in the urban landscape; details of worn out magazines, wires, rusted nails or wooden poles layered with staples and torn up paper. These mass-produced items are used to serve a momentary purpose then left to decay in their natural surroundings. In this transitional state, in this moment somewhere between glory and gloom, I find a new world that is a part of every day life even though we rarely notice it…. 



The Bones of War

Bone Art by Francois Robert: Stop the Violence

Human bones, any bones, are signifiers of death, decay- in more poetic terms- the ephemerality of life.

Photographer Francois Robert uses the powerful symbolism that accompanies human bones to create ‘Stop the Violence’ – an eerie but important series of photographs that juxtaposes bones and iconic words/symbols that in some way or another have generated deaths and violence (i.e wars, rifles, handguns, 9/11, knives, the KKK,etc)

In my photographs, I use the human skeleton as the formal visual element, the subject of the image. In this manner, the skeleton is both the protagonist and antagonist (the Buddhist notion about, “the duality of man” seems apt).

For each photograph, the artists dissembles and rearranges the bones in order to reconfigure the elements to form what you see here.

I intend the images to plant the notion of restraint and charity in an effort to promote peace and tolerance.

This incredible Bone Art by Francois Robert displays the iconography of both weapons and religion, the tools used in war and the common themes that divide the enemies. Robert’s collection of bone art, titled “Stop the Violence”, uses human bones to recreate guns, grenades, knives and tanks as well as the symbols of the major Western religions.  The images are stunning, white bone on a black background with striking detail.  Ribs, hands, shoulder blades and vertebrae are aligned to create visuals that are unmistakeably familiar.  Francois Robert’s art is at once beautiful and horrifying, a telling collection of art.
