Still Line

Sep 30 – Oct 8, 2021

About the Artist      

In a shift from the artist’s usual representational work, Kitty Horton presents new abstracted work in Still Line. Exploring painterly qualities and process-based colour application, Horton focused on eliminating recurring motifs and instead allowed the playful, imperfect satisfaction of working with materials to form the basis for these works. The lines that dominate the pieces are the new motif, used as a form of gestural mark-making that is imperfect and unmeasured.

The use of colour outside of the previous monochromatic and muted palette of Horton’s previous work is a new development, also. In Still Line, we see the use of neons alongside a new (albeit subdued) palette of pinks, greens, browns and blues. Horton states that these new works acted as a meditative performance removed from the purpose and content, abstract and playful in its creation.
