Kirrily Humphries

Home / Emerging artists / Kirrily Humphries

Kirrily Humphries becomes quietly absorbed in the solitary exploration of architectural space. In her isolation she feels a heightened sense of physical presence, an amplified sensory awareness. The excited terror of exploring a space forbidden or unknown intensifies this experience, presenting a realm for fantasy, anticipation and unfolding narrative.

Based on her expeditions within contemporary ruins, she paints moments of sublime revelation, found in their distinct phenomenological and psychological experience. In these desolate interiors she confronts her anxieties, her fears of destruction, and the transience and brevity of human legacy.
