Kirsty Lackie

Allow us to introduce you to Kirsty Lackie, an award-winning artist in whose work we think you should invest.

Kirsty (b.1989) was brought up in Edinburgh and then moved to Glasgow thirteen years ago. Her degree in Psychology (2011) from the University of Glasgow went some way to helping her understand the mechanics of a mind, and since graduating in Communication Design from the Glasgow School of Art (2018) she’s been finding a mode of articulation and expression for these thoughts and observations. Kirsty has exhibited across the U.K. with her most recent being the group show, ‘In Reverie’. She was shortlisted for GSA’s Newbery Medal and was awarded the Cromarty Arts Trust Student Residency Prize in 2018.

L-R: ‘In the Wings’; ‘Never To Be Mentioned’ (both oil pastel on panel)

“My art is about storytelling. I’m interested in blurring the line between illustration and fine art where I enjoy testing perceptions of reality and fantasy. I take inspiration from poetry, film and human encounters to parse upon the quotidian and attempt to conjugate a sense of performance often with surreal interactions.”

‘Na, I’m Just Gonna Stay In Tonight’ (acrylic on canvas)

“My recent work plays with the juxtaposition between our temporary existence, and things like, the infrangibility of everyday objects, or the awkwardness in the minutiae of the everyday. I try not to be downbeat about any of this, instead I like to set it free with humour and a dose of the absurd.
