Lot number fifty-seven:
Beautiful and unique painting by Kitty Forrest.
"My work is driven by a desire to exploit, document and display the natural behaviours of oil paint while imbuing the paint with some of the characteristics of aging.
Creating smooth, youthful skins of paint, the surface created is smooth and rich with colour, supple and fresh.
As time passes and with intervention, the paint skin undergoes unique behavioural processes, sometimes resulting in a heavily wrinkled, scarred and puckered surface that even years after conception continues to take on its final form."
Oil on linen, 30 x 70cm.
