Piece description from the artist
I AM AN OBJECT
Kira Leigh is a 24 year old MassArt Alumni who graduated in May 2011 with a BFA in Art Education. She currently lives in Boston with her cat Rolly and her partner Jon, making surrealist work (painting, photography, drawing, digital…) that grows organically like a rambling story.
Her work contains elements of gaming and popular culture, and touches upon identity, the self, the body, feminism, co-morbidity and gender.
Using a free association technique known as automatic drawing (and painting), Kira transforms her mediums of choice into psychological self portraits, much like how therapists use word association, only visually.
