Kerstin Kartscher (born 1966) is the third artist to participate in the prestigious Tate St Ives Artists’ Residency Programme, based at the historic Porthmeor Studios in St. Ives. During the 12-month residency Kartscher has developed a new body of work for the special exhibition opening this October. She was born in Nuremburg and her work portrays new fantasy worlds for contemporary women. Free of social, emotional and psychological constraints Kartscher’s women celebrate their femininity within fantastical, elegant and immense landscapes.
