Grounded – Solo Exhibition by Kirsty Black Preview Evening Thurs 4 Aug, Railway Street Studios, Newmarket, Auckland

I am interested in the process of communicating visual thought, and am fascinated with the way intangible ideas, emotions and memories can be conveyed through the choice of colours, shape, repetition and composition.  Growing up I was immersed in stimulating, often multicultural environments that included vibrant and intoxicating South East Asian cities to adventures in dramatic geological landscapes in South Africa. This background has left a lasting impression and created a visual catalogue which frequently surfaces in my work.

I have participated in group exhibitions around New Zealand and have sold art both locally and internationally. I also have a piece, ‘Pontoon Bay’ in The James Wallace Arts Trust.
