With the advantage of an illustrative mind-set, Kirsty Greenwood is motivated by ephemeral visual misunderstanding, transient half-light, ocular strangeness, nightmares, dreams and fleeting glimpses of unreality. Inspired by Faerie tales, myths and legends, ailuroanthropy, science, Alice-syndrome and transformation, childhood memories, ghost stories, naiveté, music, antique cultures, Quixotism and true romanticism; her idiosyncratic work often has its roots in dreamlike non-realities to create Art contained by the renovating of influences and ideas into images which often convey feelings of otherworldly states. Favoring pencil and ink, mixing with photography and print, Greenwood likes to work intricately to produce detailed phantasmagorias, unusual scenarios and creatures.
