From California in the United States, artist Kristen Sanders, holds an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University.


Inspired by artificial intelligence, combining scientific research with speculative development, Sander's paintings investigate and challenge a concept of origin within human evolutionary history.


She pull's from a range of digital media to contrast prehistoric imagery with technologized colors, posing her hominid characters in flattened, stylized scenes. These scenes lead to further questions that are beyond the origins of image making, such as the idea of a hominid woman as the inventor of stone tools and the intersections of leisure, desire and historical images.


Sanders thinks of her work as an archaeological dig, an ongoing exploration of possible unforeseen connections to the first mark made by Homo habilis. Her work is about self discovery, who are we on the inside and what’s behind the mask.


Kristen Sanders took part in ‘LUCKY CHARM’ a Group Exhibition of 28 International Artists. Presented by Lisa Boudet in association with Moosey Art. Opening the 4th of November 2021 at Hoxton Arches in London, United Kingdom.
