SPIRIT IS A BONE
For her exhibition at c3, Kirra Jamison has created a large-scale site-specific painting.
Drawing upon dark mythologies and childhood fairy tales Jamison paints surreal worlds that are haunting and whimsical. Set in the natural world these paintings depict deliberately ambiguous narratives that straddle the worlds of reality and imagination. The artist employs a palette that ranges from the subdued and muted to the kaleidoscopic and employs a wide range of techniques that move freely from loose and spontaneous mark making to meticulously executed finer details.
Jamison was a recipient of the Anne and Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship (2007). She exhibits regularly in solo and group exhibitions and her work is help in private and corporate collections including that of Art Bank, Macquarie Bank, KPMG and the Newcastle Regional Art Gallery. She is represent by Sophie Gannon, Melbourne and Jan Murphy Gallery, Brisbane.
