About the Artist      

Umbra’, a term for the fully shaded inner region of a shadow, is the title of Kitty Horton’s upcoming solo exhibition. Beautifully, the title captures the duality of using malleable, build-able oil pastels and paints, teamed with the impermanence and dusty quality of mark making with charcoal. Kitty’s works consistently explore materiality, while positioning social and culturally significant motifs, representative of a personal narrative. Umbra continues with Kitty’s lines of investigation, using distorted shapes, forms, and motifs, to work with the duality of light and dark, heaviness and weightlessness, design and experimentation.
