About Kirsty McIntyre
Kirsty McIntyre is an emerging Melbourne based artist working with both acrylics and oil paint, with a preference for still life compositions of Australian ceramics and flowers. Her first inspiration lay in the study of the work of well-known Australian artists such as Margaret Preston, Margaret Olley and Criss Canning, and later, Anne Redpath, the Scottish modernists and Matisse. She particularly loves the work of the Australian “modern” movement of the 1920s and 1930s.
She likes to experiment with different subjects and media, following each inspiration until another comes, painting only what moves her. Different media can bring about styllistic variation however there is a connecting thread with an emphasis on finding the beauty and vulnerability in her subjects.
She has exhibited her work in the Canterbury art show, the St Kevins art show, the Warranwood art show, the Camberwell art show, the Linden postcard show, and the 69 Smith st gallery group exhibition, the Brunswick Street Gallery and the Victorian Artists Society where she is a member. Her work is held in private collections in Australia, New York, New Orleans and France
She is currently preparing to be the feature artist at the Roberts McCubbin art show in November 2018 and for a group exhibition at the Victorian Artists Society in 2019
Further work is also on display in the Bluethumb
