The nuances of her expression, the subtleties of her body language, the story of a woman captured by the gaze of another, in likeness. A farmer, a mother, a model. An escapist, a realist, a provider. A protector, a humanist, an iconoclast. Kirsten Owen, at forty-eight, remains the epitome of artistic mien, capturing the zeitgeist of articulated louche minimalism. Never one to conform, Owen’s has walked the runway while pregnant, left the industry for a simpler life many times over and maintains an honest perspective in a filtered universe. It’s not surprising that she remains a muse nearly three decades later, even to a peer and fellow icon Guinevere Van Seenus. Here, in Van Seenus’ first officially published work, we capture the unspoken dialogue between two unparalleled artists and women.
A farmer, a mother, a model.
An escapist, a realist, a provider.
A protector, a humanist, an iconoclast.
