Glasgow artist Kirsty Lackie was born in 1989. A sense of her fleeting existence looms large in her work. She enjoys using poetry, theatre, and film to parse upon the quotidian and conjugate a sense of performance often with absurdist or surreal interactions. Her recent work depicts somewhat dream-like scenes shot through with a sense of otherness and humour. Her degree in Psychology (2011) from the University of Glasgow has helped her understand the mechanics of a mind, and through her degree in Communication Design from the Glasgow School of Art (2018) she’s finding a mode of articulation and expression for these thoughts and observations. She believes her work is attempting to explain a sense of marginality that she has felt in her life, but she doesn’t want to give it sadness, instead, she tries to set it free.
