Kirsty Black

From a young age Kirsty expressed herself through a love of colour, pattern and repetition. That developed into a fascination with abstraction. 

“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” she says. Kirsty grew up immersed in stimulating, often multicultural, environments as diverse as vibrant South East Asian cities and dramatic geological landscapes in South Africa. This background has left a lasting impression and created a visual catalogue which frequently surfaces in her work.
