Kirsty Boutle’s practice uses drawing, painting and sculpture as a material interrogation of the body; an insatiable desiring and viscerally maniacal machine. Questions of merging and intertwining; the reciprocal actualisation of virtual states in, on and through a body. An intimate examination of the emergence of subjectivity brought about by transfigurative encounters with other forms and forces.

During her residency Kirsty will create a series of small and detailed drawings and paintings, focusing on the exploration and combination of one or two repeated motifs within her recent 2 dimensional works which featured in her recent exhibition with Eilidh McPherson, Visceral Absurdities,  at the Patriothall Gallery, Edinburgh.

Kirsty will be headlining our exhibition programme this April. To find out more about Kirsty and her work visit her website: www.kirstyboutle.com
