You Are Here by Kirsten Sims

’You Are Here’ is a visual quest for space and a desire to go on imaginary adventures to find the place between being lost and found. This body of work is both an exploration of narrative on a larger format and an investigation of how abstract mark making can be combined with figurative story telling.
Telling stories on a larger scale feels overwhelming and exciting and that feeling is what I want to investigate with this exhibition. Using old magazines, personal photographs and the infinite rabbit holes of the Internet as my points of departure I explore the landscapes and stories from the area ‘where the pin drops’. As always my focus is on people, places, parties, palms and pets. – Kirsten Sims via Salon91
