SURROUND: Kit Porter Solo Show 2022

“Throughout this body of work, I am utilizing rich color to create fields of fragments reminiscent of fields of wildflowers, inviting the viewer to not only experience the collection of fragments as a whole, but to look closer and notice how each fragment is formed. While a field of colorful flowers viewed from a distance is an excellent metaphor for a feeling of joy and abundance; it is important to recognize the smaller parts that make up such an experience. By painting an abundance of small fragments on a large scale, I pay particular attention to the formation of each fragment. Using paint as the external force to alter each shape, some shapes are full and round, while others are eroded away in a series of scooped concave edges. It is important to me that the resulting shapes in my work are not representative of any certain type of flower. While my focus begins with the notion of an abundant field, through my artistic process my focus shifts to form, and ends in fragment. With each painting I strive to further refine my personal artistic language by refining my brushwork, in order to better communicate my feelings about human experience, in particular that my life is altered by the physical and interpersonal environments that surround and shape me.”
