Kirsty Reid’s practice considers process and materiality through the exploration of water based paints and the potential of painterly marks they can create. This results in invented, fragmented landscapes regenerated in watercolour to form a dreamlike state.
"Watercolour is something of a foreign country to me, so I found the considered work of Kirsty Reid immediately arresting. There's a sense of something remembered and familiar in them, it’s a very clever thing to achieve. Here is a painter who understands that which is left out is as important as that which is not, and through careful but confident selection, she creates these sublimely understated paintings which deliberately give us just enough."
