Kirsten Asche – Mosaic Classes

Kirsten Asche considers herself to be a modern artisan. Her path towards her current practice has been through various forms of study and mentoring, honed by years of visual observation and response, interwoven with other pursuits.
Born into a family of Nordic and Germanic roots, in her work, Asche references a fantasy landscape that has mystical and otherworldly qualities. Steeped in narrative and the folkloric traditions of Europe together with exploration of Eastern spiritual traditions, her visual language now embraces rich textural pattern and layered colour.
As a skilled crafts person, Asche embodies echoes of the past in her works, with a strong eclectic mix of materials, referencing a contemporary traditionalism.
