Kirsten Stingle’s Dark Circus Sculptures Will Give You the Creeps

With an antique essence from the stark white figures and purposeful additions of dark hues, the miniatures in Kirsten Stingle’s Shadow Circus evoke otherworldliness. Creating snapshots from narratives as yet incomplete, Stingle’s circus looks like a frightening depiction of entertainment that is far from the “greatest show on Earth.”
