Kristie Hansen

San Francisco-based Kristie Hansen is a conceptual artist working primarily in sculpture. Concerned with the disposable nature of today’s society, she seeks to reflect on the fragility of nature and our human connection to its strength, power and energy. Unwanted commodities are manipulated and joined with the natural world to transform them into evocative works that raise questions about the environment, consumerism, community, beauty, and the world around us.
