Kirsten Baskett

Kirsten Baskett is a contemporary print artist based in London. She has received an MA in printmaking from Camberwell College in 2012.

She engages with digital technology based on an understanding of traditional methods rather than regarding them as an out-dated medium.

She is represented by galleries in London, New York, Paris and says:

“I am drawn to functional objects that have had a close human association and develop a patina or emotional charge through intense or prolonged use.
This “Einfuhlung” effect affirms the emotion carried by the object and I strive to draw it out through several stages (Including creating paper sculptures, encasing them with clear resin, photographing them and then outputting onto film).

Each is devised to dissolve away the original form until only the emotional energy, which it had absorbed, remains.”
