Kahli Perkins 'A matter of urgency'

A new solo pop-up exhibition by Queensland artist, Kahli Perkins.

Kahli Perkins’ luminous abstract paintings are explorations of light and colour. In her upcoming exhibition, A matter of urgency, she will present a series of airbrushed acrylic paintings on canvas alongside watercolours on paper.

Using rhythmic and beguiling bands of colour, Perkins fastens upon moments of quietude and stillness. Creating works that encourage viewers to slow down can be seen as a subversive and urgent act in our oversaturated and constantly stimulated visual culture. The gentle mesmerising nature of these paintings both induce and demand surrender to their quiet presence.
