BREAK OUT THE PAINT:
A visit with the charming painterly works of:
Cape Town, South Africa
Kirsten's work holds a true spontaneity & energy that flows within each brush stoke. Her images evoke a bold saucy sense of whimsical narrative, combined with her own unique Degas-ian sophisticated color palette.
KIRSTEN SIMS expresses the way she views the world through painting, seeking a connection with viewers through images. Her work has a strong narrative quality and is often animated by a sartorial crowd of characters, but she just as naturally replaces the theatre of human interaction with the drama of a natural landscape. Whether familiar or imagined, place plays an important role in her work. She lives and works in Cape Town but the vista she has painted most is the ocean view from her family home in Mossel Bay. Sims completed a BA in Applied Design at the Stellenbosch Academy and her Honours degree in Illustration at Stellenbosch University. She currently works on editorial and commercial illustration projects while exhibiting both locally and internationally.
