Out/About: Kirra Jamison
We la-la-love Kirra Jamison. We do. It is like Kirra is able to paint how we feel about colour. Her work is beguiling: each work demands much looking and wondering and head-tilting.
Kirra’s painterly way is unique and always has a positive, upbeat allure. The ways she mixes palettes make her trademark block-colour shapes and serpent-like loops appear to dance around on the canvas all on their own. Both colour-brave and colour-aware, Kirra has a magical way of making hues feel like they should always be together.
Her latest collection ‘Still Point’ is brave and confident, and will not disappoint her legions of devoted fans. Following close on the heels of last year’s hugely popular ‘Locomotor’, it seems safe to say that Kirra has no shortage of inspiration.
Still Point runs until 20 April at Sophie Gannon Gallery Melbourne, open Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 5pm (or by appointment).
