Paper Pieces with Kirsten Francis

Boulevard Bouquet Mixed Media featuring Papirmass artist Kirsten Francis

Kirsten Francis is a mixed media artist from Encinitas, California. With a background in reductive woodblock prints, Kirsten’s past experience highly informs their current work of collage and mixed media with its complementary practice of cutting, carving, and the layering of colours and images. Using vintage paper, maps, and photos from magazines and illustrated books, Kirsten’s work is a spectacle of natural and manmade elements, with patterned circles unifying each item, making sure they don’t float away.

The figures in Kirsten’s mixed media work are not intended as specific portraits but as “a human counterpoint to the incessant flow of exquisitely curated images that saturate the media we consume.” Continue below to view Kirsten’s work and  Subscribe by August 31st to add this stunning collage artist’s work to your collection!
