Trying to Remember II, 2011
Using objects that she has a personal relationship to, Kirkpatrick fuses transparent symbolic and family portraits with children’s toys and blocks, boxes and tins. She offers illustrations of the world experienced through a woman’s perspective, revealing the intricacies of the feminine allure. Tattered tins and blocks present divine womanly figures that are delicate combinations of strength and control, grace and ethereality.
