Kirra Jamison cultivates ideas. A true dream weaver, her initial kernels of intuition germinate into lines, forms and patterns that branch and interlay the picture plane with snatches of narrative. Floating amongst the fragments of decorative motif and patterning, vignettes of everyday experience emerge and inveigle the viewer with abundant possibilities of meaning. Harmonious or chaotic, repeated or disrupted, Jamison's use of patterns and images dismantles cultural boundaries, blurring the divide between high and low art, the East and the West, the past and the present.
The Jan Murphy Gallery is a must for more details on Jamison's new work and a range of other contemporary Australian artist's profiles. ♥
