Artist / Personal Statement
Painting the images of the New Testament helps me grasp that the Word indeed became flesh - and is present in the Comforter. Integrated into each painting is the verse on which it is based, written in Greek – a link to the original form of the text. The configurations of repeated shapes reflect the influence of several indigenous art forms: Southeast Asian fabrics and basketry, Scandinavian woolen tapestries, Native American weaving and traditional American quilts.
Accomplishments / CV
Kirsten's images have been in 69 solo exhibitions and a similar number of sacred art group shows. Her work has appeared in religious periodicals, on book covers and Augsburg Fortress Sunday bulletins. She graduated in 1978 with a B.A., major in art, from Bethel University in St. Paul, MN and later completed additional coursework in Drawing, Painting and Watercolor at the University of Minnesota and the University of Iowa.
