Kim McDonald’s research into the self as subject has resulted in a body of soft velvety drawings on paper. McDonald investigates the demarcation between interior and exterior space. Informed by Cindy Sherman and Freda Khalo, she questions the location of the self with regard to the interior and exterior of the physical and emotional body.
The focus of her research has been to investigate what happens at the junction, where one space borders the other. It is on this living, breathing, semi permeable and tactile skin that the division between the interior and exterior occurs. The resulting intuitive mark making on paper investigates this living edge and the possibilities that lie on either side.
Kim McDonald is currently undertaking a Masters of Visual Art at Monash University. This is her first exhibition at red gallery.
