look at these gorgeous mixed media sculptures made from intricate paper cut outs, pipe cleaners, artboard and more from brooklyn’s kirsten hassenfeld. i love the scale and the delicate nature of the materials she uses. to me these pieces are poking and pushing around their edges, preparing to break into something bigger, into excess or obsession, or both.
these compositions are like a decadent party replete with extravagant strands of pearls and soft decorative chains strewn across the ceiling. i admire the softness of the light and the intimate feeling kirsten gifts to her viewers with these carefully crafted works.
