Zoe Kirkwood challenges the perception of paint as a two-dimensional art form by creating an entire visual world through painting, sculpturing, and installation art. With saturated colours and robotic yabbies on display, Kirkwood describes her upcoming exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia as, “colourful and eclectic”. Take those crustaceans and run wild with your imagination.
Much of the collection presents elements and processes from earlier sculptures and paintings, which ultimately allows them to become a series of transformations. By creating an intricate and ornate stage set, Kirkwood invites her viewers to witness her work shift between two and three dimensional forms and become entirely immersed within the creative process.
