Kirstine Reiner Hansen draws on the strategies and manipulations of fashion and media, mashed up with art history, exploring identity and connections. The artist appropriates imagery from magazines and advertising as visual reference, conjoined with art historical elements, from renaissance paintings to the modernists in collage-like paintings. Ambiguous narratives are present in the work, and often involve multiple figures that are distorted and broken, surrounded by turbulence as they seek to retain some solidity... and glamour.
