'Blue Herring' by Kate MacKenzie
Oil on Canvas
Size: 123 x 103cm
New Work by Kate MacKenzie - part of her latest series, 'Hot with a chance of Normality'. Within these oil paintings are unique and random brushstrokes exploring the subconscious mind under abnormal circumstances.
In this piece, Animals and beaches are depicted as the healers of the human spirit. The comfort their honesty provides. What is it with the blue Herring – is it distracting us from our own reality, or is it there to entertain. Can I still trust in nature itself.
There is a surreal sense of calm within this piece.
