Kirsty Black: About & Media

About Kirsty Black

I spent much of her life growing up around the world and from a young age naturally expressed myself through a love of colour, pattern and repetition which developed into a fascination with abstraction. This tendency, in conjunction with the stimulation from a peripatetic life and a love of storytelling, forms the basis of my work.

I aim to create joyful works that engage with the viewer, leading them on a journey of individual interpretation. Just as I find abstract painting liberating, I would like it to be freeing for the audience too.

In the last 13 years I have presented my work around New Zealand, selling here and overseas. I also has a work, Pontoon Bay, with The James Wallace Arts Trust. View exhibitions…
