Home is thrilled to be exhibiting work by Kirsty Budge in our ‘Melbourne Comes to Sydney’ show opening in March. Our Art Month exhibition will feature a stellar line-up of Melbourne artists.
“…Kirsty Budge’s work vacillates between abstraction and figuration. Her psychologically charged paintings are populated with humour, humans, hopes and horrors. The works connect personal experiences, thought patterns, observations and environments through intuitive processes. Real and imagined forms are combined on the same picture plane and, through the process of mark-making, each is given equal value in the space of the painting. The structure of each painting emerges through a lengthy process of excavation and application by the artist, resulting in an image that is both a response to and a construction of a personal narrative…”
In 2018, Budge undertook a residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, as recipient of an Art Gallery of New South Wales Studio Scholarship and exhibited in NADA New York.
