BEINGS ON LOCATION
It has been observed that Kirsty E Smith’s work has sophistication and humour in equal measures. Taking a theatrical approach to the process of planning, setting up and photographing these activities become a performance in themselves. The adrenalin and nervous energy that she feels while working around; farmers, animals, dog walkers and children waiting for a donkey ride contribute to the ‘performance' - often with comedic moments.
'Hooty with Steelworks' and 'Hurgle Lenz - donkey days' were selected by Richard Wentworth and shown in 'Wells Art Contemporary' 2013
"There is a strong sense of procession, pageantry and folklore in her work." Richard Wentworth 2013
