Kirsty Whiten’s new exhibition ICON ORACLE opens 7 June 2018 at Edinburgh’s Arusha Gallery.
Personal transformation and mythical inspiration will be the focus of mesmerising, large-scale portraits in this new exhibition. ICON ORACLE, a solo show, will explore the power of vulnerability through a stunning visual reinterpretation of initiation ceremonies.
An Edinburgh College of Art graduate and now based in Fife, Whiten (b.1977) excels at weaving human emotions in her hyperrealist paintings, which often trigger a deeply-layered response. These new portraits in this exhibition will comprise a group of six oil paintings (ICONS) and a set of eight smaller, intimate watercolours (ORACLES).
Exhibition continues 8-25 June.
