As an artist Kylie draws inspiration for her intimate still life works from her immediate surroundings. In this series, Kylie draws attention to light and it’s effect on surfaces and textures.
Using common household objects, Kylies compositions highlight not only their aesthetic beauty through colour, form and light but also their relationship to one another and the space they individually hold.
Her strong compositions often include still-life objects like old books and vintage kitchenalia, these items express qualities and ideals of solidity and permanence. Often discarded, they are reminders of the past and evoke memories as a child finding ‘treasure’ with her dad.
Working in both oil and pastel, Kylie works from her studio in Hurstbridge, Victoria.
