Kahli Perkins skilfully creates luminous abstract paintings that reveal her commitment to materials, surface, light and colour. Evoking stillness, her works convey the beauty found in order, patterns and moments of quietude.
Her meditative ethereal paintings are borne of a painstaking process that involves physically manipulating the canvas into geometric forms prior to paint application. Using a unique spray technique, she builds layers of beguiling colour to achieve paintings that have an illusion of depth and that appear to glow from within.
She recently graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University and has been included in several group exhibitions. Her recent solo exhibitions include, Interference Patterns, at Grey Street Gallery in 2021 and A matter of urgency with Aster + Asha Gallery in 2022, both in Brisbane. She was a finalist in the Sunshine Coast Prize 2021.
