Introducing Kate Birrell
I am a painter living and working in Melbourne.
My work revolves around the theatre of every day living and is predominantly figurative.
The vibrancy and texture of oil paint is well suited to my sense of drama and play, action, movement and colour of daily life. It enables me to explore the realm in which I live, as well as the wider aspects of living in the city of Melbourne. I hope that it allows time for reflection and that it adds another dimension to that which is, or seems to be, pedestrian.
