Salon Ninety One presents the opening of As You Were, a solo exhibition by Kirsten Sims. The exhibit opens on July 16 at 6.30pm.
Kirsten Sims is a visual artist and illustrator living in Cape Town, South Africa. She divides her time between exhibiting her personal work, doing commercial illustration projects and creating children’s picture books.
Sims expresses the way she views the world through painting, seeking a connection with viewers through images. Her work has a strong narrative quality and is often animated by a sartorial crowd of characters, but she just as naturally replaces the theatre of human interaction with the drama of a natural landscape. Whether familiar or imagined, place plays an important role in her work.
Sims completed a BA in Applied Design at the Stellenbosch Academy and her Honours degree in Illustration at Stellenbosch University. She currently works on editorial and commercial illustration projects while exhibiting both locally and internationally.
Salon Ninety One is the representative gallery of Sims. They are a boutique gallery and art consultation service, and aim to develop new brands of local talent.
