Acrylic, Charcoal + Graphite


Kit Porter received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of the South in 2005. Through a personally-developed abstract language, her work explores the concept of removal. Deeply influenced by the coastal environment, the bold, seemingly abstract shapes in her paintings appear as though they are becoming engulfed by the negative space surrounding them. Through her unique rendering of these shapes, the artist successfully creates complex pieces that encourage the viewer to consider the process and result of physical, metaphorical and visual removal. Kit currently lives and works in Beaufort, South Carolina, USA.
