Artist Profiles » Kirsty Black

Kirsty BlackKirsty recently moved to Maraetai Auckland where she relishes the numerous beaches and wildlife while being in close proximity to the city.

Kirsty primarily uses mixed media and acrylic on canvas translating everyday objects into abstract snapshots of often vivid colours, movement and texture. She is drawn to elemental forms and has an affinity for shapes that repeat and create a pattern.

She enjoys the spontaneity, immediacy and bold vibrant colours that acrylic allows.

The creation of an atmosphere or impression, rather than the reality is important to Kirsty, as this leaves the painting open to interpretation, allowing the viewer to participate in the painting by evoking a feeling or memory from their own life or background.

The bold, vibrant colours and style conveys a joy of life and a cheerful personality which she wants to transfer to the viewer.

Kirsty “…likes abstract art for its ability to lead a viewer down their own path, drawing on their experiences and imagination.”

Kirsty is a trained graphic designer who has been exhibiting and selling her art since 2006. She has also sold her art to international buyers in Australia, America, France, England and Korea, including a number of commissions.
