Kirsty Reilly is an experimental maker based in Belfast, Ireland, inspired by natural forms
“My work is inspired by the natural world-the moon and landscapes. With the use of various materials and processes I hope to evoke a sense of mystery, and intrigue. Mountains, lunar shapes and earthy forms are represented as obscure yet tactile pieces of jewellery. In this series I wanted to push the boundaries of the materials used, experimenting with different pigments, and inks in an attempt to mimic the reactions and decay found in nature. In my practice I enjoy mixing materials that would not normally be in combination; wood and plastic, sand and PVA, couple to create dynamic anomalies of form.”
You can see more of Kirsty’s fabulous work in the Chain Reaction Exhibition. The first show will open at St. Georgre’s Church Saturday 13th September.
