Kirsty Mackay

Kirsty is a Fine Artist and Printmaker who sees herself primarily as a maker. With a degree in Fine Art / Printmaking, she uses the process of painting to construct shape and form while embracing chance and spontaneity. Kirsty's work yields a wealth of color and pattern, offering a quiet discourse within its chaotic and consuming nature.

Influenced by Eva Hesse's exploration of ephemeral materials and Georgia O'Keeffe's meditative depictions of the natural world, Kirsty combines controlled manipulation with the uncontrollable to reveal abstracted yet recognisable color fields. Her paintings invite viewers to lose themselves and discover new possibilities within the vibrant compositions.

Through her art, Kirsty aims to provide viewers with an immersive experience, allowing them to find their own moments of introspection and self-discovery. With a deep understanding of materials and their properties, she creates works that evoke emotion and transcend the ordinary.
