Kristen Hemrich is Iris' Digital Media Contributor for this year! She is an artist living in Richmond, VA. Her work has been exhibited in multiple galleries around town. Her work can be found on her blog: https://www.instagram.com/kirsten_hemrich/.
I am a visual artist and work abstractly on paintings, sculptures and illustrations. My work is playful, and the self portrait I have submitted draws on themes of queerness and femininity.
Kirsten Hemrich works on both large scale oil paintings and mixed-media based artists books. Her work is influenced by post painterly abstraction. She is interested in visually exploring the transient nature of life in her paintings.
