Come Shilly Shally - Kirsty Black opens 26 September, 5.30 pm

Shilly Shally, the fine art of dawdling…

In much the same way cloud gazing prompts a story or daydreaming allows the mind to meander, the development of an artwork sparks Kirsty Black’s imagination and a story unfolds.

Weaving childhood memories with storylines and explosions of colour, Black’s abstract art is like visual poetry. Instead of words and sentences, she intuitively uses colour, shape, line, form, pattern and texture to create a visual dance of the spirit.

Storytelling is a family tradition for Black; it brings everyone together, creates a sense of belonging and is often entertaining. She sees painting as an extension of this tradition, a medium where imagination has free rein. For Come Shilly Shally her aim is to engage the viewer, leading them on an unexpected journey of individual interpretation.

So, why not dive into the colour, get lost in the twists and turns, loop in and out and off? Shilly Shally is to explore!
