 The Solo Exhibition  Kirsten Baskett  28 – 07 October

A London based print artist combining traditional drawing and photographic techniques.

Kirsten says of his work

“I erode and deconstruct the image, striving to draw out the ‘emotional charge’ and dissolve away the original form and materiality of the object on which it was deposited. This allows me to create an etching plate, capturing the moment. I print in Prussian blue onto extremely delicate Japanese Kozo paper, similar to the cyanotype printing of the nineteenth century”.

The Cult House is a creative group connecting people in various creative disciplines (arts, craft, design, writing, music and performance) with commercial and social events. The Cult House started its collective on Facebook, Instagram Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and LinkedIn, where presents daily tips on several art topics and use all them to help on the promotion and network to get more visibility for our artists. The website went live on April 2014 and since then The Cult House is increasing their International online artist collective. The aim of the collective is to boost visibility online as much as possible for both parts, for the company and more importantly for the artists within the online gallery, maximizing all our connections and advertising the artists’ profiles as well as important events.
