About This Dealer
Kirsten Stingle’s narrative sculptures confront a modern paradox: a globally connected world that produces and heightens individual isolation and a superficial understanding of our place in the world. Her work strives to cut through this isolation by highlighting common threads of the human experience through storytelling. Her goal is to create a dialogue with the viewer, encouraging self-revelation and promoting a greater understanding of one another. The primary protagonist in each sculpture is the hand-built porcelain figure, with special emphasis on the communication tools of gesture and expression. Through careful collaboration with other mediums such as fiber, metal, book arts, wood, and basketry, she transforms an intricate mixture of disparate techniques into a seamless narrative vision. Stingle was highlighted in the following museum exhibitions: Museo MACRO of Rome, Italy; Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art; Georgia Museum of Arts and Sciences; Harn Museum and Barton College of Art. She has participated in international high-end exhibitions for more than ten years, including SOFA, Art Miami: Aqua, Art New York, Art Wynwood, Art Palm Beach, and Art Palm Springs. Her work is found in the permanent collections of the Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences, the Kapp Foundation, the Addams Family Foundation, Cafesjian Foundation, and Windgate Center for Art and Design. Stingle has gained curatorial experience as co-curator of the following exhibitions “Taboo: Sexuality and Sexual Identity in Ceramics,” and “Sacred and Profane,” and “Deconstructing the Conversation.”
