Kaisa Kangro

I am inspired by wildlife, its colours and shapes and like to explore the connection between nature and people. In my work I focus on the beauty of nature, the symmetry, detail, imperfection in conventional sense that is actually exactly perfect. 

Sometimes I like finding humour in my work, for example caught-off-guard moments that happen with everyone every now and then. I believe that Life has an amazing sense of humour and that she loves to have a good laugh. Sometimes it’s on us, other times at herself. In the end of the day, some random things that happen unexpectedly are truly amusing. It breaks the monotony and the routine and in that moment Life surprises with its presence, and so we feel more alive, more awkward, more humble, more connected.

Materials and Methods
I have tested with various methods, but some methods have resonated with me more. I like drawing with pastels and markers, as they give a completely different effect. For sculpture I love using bronze. My bronze sculptures get their bronze finish usually in Estonia. Also, sometimes the animal really becomes alive when I have found its rock. A stone or piece of granite that transforms the bronze sculpture into something completely new.
