Kiasmin Burrell

Kiasmin is a local contemporary artist to Newcastle NSW. Growing up on a rural property in the beautiful Hunter Valley, nature has become a key component to her Art practice. Often you will find earth tones, or organic shapes in the layering of her paintings drawing a strong connection to her childhood experiences in the bush.  Travelling to Newcastle and the Hunter Valley you will see Kiasmin’s oil paintings and large mural work featured throughout, in key places like The Edwards Bar, the front cover of our local magazine ‘Swell, in Westfield Kotara, down the popular Darby street, and Crown street and much loved spaces like House of Lita and Smac Space Studios.

Since finishing my Fine Arts degree in 2017, my art practice has grown really quickly in my beloved little town of Newcastle. You can see my mural work and Oil paintings all over key areas of our beachy, salty art loving coffee drinking town. I am thrilled to be part of this exhibtion at Michael Reid as a new experience in stepping out into a larger community and sharing my work with you. These paintings speak of my youth, the earth beneath my feet and the rolling mountains of the property i grew up on. There is a depth and layering to these paintings that i hope to invite you in-to. The ground is moving, the clay squishes between your toes and the night is settling in. I can almost smell the crisp air, and a light whift of smoke drifting from the open fireplace as i make my way through the property heading home.
