ARTIST STATEMENT

"These geometric shapes explore the potential of tonal and textural variation. The two-dimensional visual frame extends upwards, creating a viewing dynamic. Sourcing inspiration from motifs in nature such as the sun, a tree and curved arcs from a landscape."

BIO

Kirsten Perry is a Naarm / Melbourne based ceramic artist. She predominately slip casts mid-fired functional and non-functional vessels that pay homage to traditional ceramics. The bio-morphic objects she creates are initially carved from disposable materials such as foam and cardboard, then translated into ceramic. Something is gained in this translation, somehow more than the evidence of the process. Kirsten’s process highlights texture and often exaggerates imperfection. She is attracted to flaws and vulnerabilities.  

Kirsten has bachelor’s in fine art and Industrial Design from RMIT University, and an Advanced Diploma of Electronic Design & Interactive Media, RMIT. She also attempted two years of a Master of Fine ART by research at Federation University from 2012 - 2014. Kirsten has exhibited in a range of Australian and international galleries and has won the 2021 Klytie Pate Ceramic Award and the 2021 Stanthorpe 3D Cast Art Prize, and has been a finalist in various sculpture and ceramic awards 

Her work was acquired by the Gold Coast City Gallery in 2016. She has completed ceramic residencies in Germany 2017, Peru 2018, China 2023 and took part in a secondment at Kailea Arts Indigenous Art Centre at Shepparton, Victoria in 2022.
