Solo Exhibition- “Sentinel”
18-28 November 2021
Kirsty’s artwork reflects her passion for the natural world. She is well known for her evocative landscapes and her seascapes of Sydney Harbour. Living close to the coast, Kirsty is also drawn to our ferries and regularly paints these great icons of our city.
‘Sentinel’ focuses on the sublime rocky headlands, cliffs and platforms that quietly stand guard seemingly protecting the harbour. Their resilience and vulnerability carry a compelling juxtaposition. Kirsty perceives their wild and weathered features to hold histories and wisdom of our past. “I am drawn to their profound and mysterious beauty.”
Her expressive, layered, and textured paintings are inspired by Australian landscapes and are infused with a blend of memory and imagination to capture an emotional response. She strives to convey her delight or amazement for the image or narrative being expressed. The observer is encouraged to feel present forming their own interpretations and connections to a work.
Kirsty has held successful solos in Sydney and regularly exhibits in group shows across the state. She was selected to exhibit at The Other Art Fair in Sydney in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Most recently she was a salon finalist in the 2021 Lethbridge Landscape Prize. Her work is held by collectors in Europe, the UK, US, New Zealand, and Australia.
