KAYE MCGARVA | TAKING HER TECHNIQUE TO NEW SCALE
Kaye McGarva has become known for her compelling contemporary paintings that explore ideas of perception, illusion and light play.
To create her work, McGarva uses spray paint techniques. By applying paint to her canvases in a mist she is able to create subtle tonal graduation suitable for the depiction of creased paper, folding fabric and textured surfaces. McGarva finds reference in the movements of Abstract Expressionism and Op Art.
We are pleased to release McGarva's largest artwork on canvas to date Traces in the Sand (180 H x 270cm W). This is a significant canvas that pushes her technique to its limit, creating a highly immersive painting. Traces in the Sand is restful in palette yet rich in detail and light illusion, it transports the viewer with its reminiscence to sand dunes.
Now on show at the gallery, contact us with any questions.
