Artist Statement

Artist and author Kirstie Adamson is known for her magazine collage artworks, using the colours and textures that she finds in old magazines as an alternative to paint. For over twenty years Kirstie has specialised in using reclaimed materials creatively, leading her to focus on magazine collage from 2007. The artworks have an environmental core message, the fragility of life, emotion and perception being key subjects explored and interpreted in intricate layers of paper, often mistaken for oil paintings. Kirstie often depicts the simplistic way in which children view and respond to the world around them, drawing parallels between environmental issues and the generation we need to preserve the world for.
