Through a personally-developed abstract language, Kit Porter explores the concept of removal and how it relates to beauty. Deeply influenced by thousands of tiny fragments of plastic the artist has removed from the coastal environment, the bold, seemingly abstract shapes in her work are striking from a distance, yet infused with a raw, textural quality upon closer observation.
The process of removing and reimagining fragments is replicated in the painting process, creating shapes and colors which seem to float on an empty plane. The artist successfully creates complex pieces that encourage the viewer to consider the process and result of physically and metaphorically removing something destructive from one's environment.
Kit Porter received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of the South in 2005. Through a personally-developed abstract language, her work explores the beauty and concurrent destruction of the coastal environment.
In addition to her own art practice, she has held positions in various sectors of the fine art world, both locally and internationally. Kit currently lives and works in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA and is represented by Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia, Bee Street Gallery in Dallas + Fort Worth, Texas, Well + Wonder Artist Collective and Serena + Lily.
