I currently live in Eltham.
Kylie Inglis is an oil and cold wax artist from Eltham, Melbourne. Her contemporary landscapes, distinctively ethereal and atmospheric in mood, flow from a highly intuitive process and practice.
Compositionally, the translucent nature of her paintings, beckon the viewer deep into the vast escaping space and sense of dynamic movement of the scene. Her paintings are typically characterised by a point of hope on a distant horizon and can simultaneously evoke an 'intimate knowing' with a profound sense of 'mystery unfolding'. The broad range of luminous layers and paradoxical perspectives created, though all vying legitimately for the beholder's attention, retain an usually striking congruence overall. An intentional asymmetry also delightfully disturbs the compositions, mirroring the state of one's inner world (with all of its complexities) in navigating the vicissitudes of life. "My artwork expresses an endless preoccupation with luminous bodies of cloud, and the expansive firmament we call the sky. I am continually fascinated by skyscapes - vast unfolding space - filled with giant transient celestial bodies. It naturally conjures an awe-like wonder, reconnecting us back to a simple yet deeply felt sense of spirituality. At the same time, I find an inescapable lure, charged with a reverential fear that both humbly grounds and supernaturally elevates. All of it speaks a universal language that is beautifully arresting whilst inviting our surrender. And it is within all of these knife-edge tensions and paradoxes that I intend to perpetually leave my paintings."
