   Artist Statement - Kirsten Kay
My passion lies in creating art that portrays the magic and mystery in the ephemeral, ethereal life of the natural world.  I photograph macro and print large, highlighting the small, overlooked beauty in our natural world.             
 
I love to push the boundaries of photography by using unconventional techniques such as free lensing, modified vintage lenses and alternative printing methods to create my images. I reintroduce natural materials into my pieces by fusing layers of pine resin, beeswax, and pigment onto the printed images, bringing them back to life with texture, depth, and translucency.
 
My goal is to create art that inspires wonder, joy, and appreciation of our natural world with the intention of growing a collective desire to help protect and preserve our natural environment.


Kirsten Kay is a Madison, Wisconsin based mixed media artist working in photography and encaustics.
