kylie mouat > opposites attract

Born in New Zealand and now residing in Melbourne, Kylie is a very strong, passionate and eclectic artist who has lived all over the world.  She has a background in both visual and performing arts and her artistic pursuits have many common threads.  It is her ability to use these in her paintings that gives her abstract work a point of difference.  She creates both a sense of movement with her juxtaposition of texture and colour, often rendering the viewer with unexpected emotion. 

Kylie has very strong environmental principles and creates her paintings using existing materials, such as the last two inches in a tin of house paint and timber off-cuts from a construction site.  Her inspiration comes in many different forms including street characters, popular culture, human expression, advertising layouts, and multicultural philosophers – it’s all part of the fabric of life and the decisions we make.

‘Opposites Attract’ is a reflection of how we allow our own brain to trick us into being ‘right’, or ‘correct’.  We find people frustrating and feel that we are better than them in our opinion; however what we dislike in others is often a reflection of ourselves – our own actions.  Maybe that is why as humans we often cannot explain why we are attracted to a person, a painting, a colour…..we don’t want to admit to certain traits in our own personalities.  The truth is we need opposites, duality, unevenness; it makes us think, question, and discuss.  We need to be both bold and subtle, we need to take risks and yet be calm, and we need to both socialise with abandon and enjoy our own personal quiet company.  Most importantly we need intriguing art to look at while doing all of the above!
