Bigger Pleasures (27/36)


What is that flying thing?

“I’m interested in how making informed by experience can allow the personal to cross realms into the magical. Using emblems and childish motifs, my work takes a post-diary formation, that homes my drawings somewhere between private and public. Over lockdown I began thinking about magic portals, journeying, and the supernatural comforts these ideas can provide. A quest where we collect tokens of hope, befriend insects and look for small pleasures. These days my practice revolves around these values of positivity and creating a web of calm for myself and others.” - Kitty Short, 2021
