Perth, Western Australia
My name is Kitty Robertson. I currently live and in Perth Western Australia. I am trained as an archaeologist and this inspires much of my work.
Inspired by my work as an archaeologist in Western Australia, my art looks at human environments when the people are gone; the landscape of memory and mind, as well as the strange way that emotion and subconscious thought influence them.
I work primarily with mixed media to create colourful textural abstract paintings. I love working with abstract land, colour and mindscapes because I feel they invite participation, contemplation, and speculation.
My most recent paintings explore the themes of detachment, disconnect, loneliness, isolation, and memory. Although I am inspired by abstract concepts, the mood and expression of my work is deeply connected to my personal experiences and the feelings and thoughts they evoke.
