'Chasing the Sunshine' is a vibrant new abstract painting by Australian artist Kirsten Jackson whose practice seeks to suffuse the whole world with radiant beacons of painted happiness.
Kirsten works in impasto style with a variety of acrylic mediums on canvas, each work is infused with boundless energy and joy for life. Her determination to exude shameless, infectious happiness everyday through her art has made Kirsten a beloved fixture among the Australian art community.
A life-long love of painting and studying Visual Arts at RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), inspired Kirsten’s vibrant career as an abstract artist. Expressionist in style, her first series, “Faces” depicted figurative portraits of Kirsten’s late mother, whom Kirsten strongly believes guided her to art. Whilst her work has since evolved into a texturally rich exploration of colour, light and space, Kirsten’s earlier portraits spontaneous style is present in her works to this day. For the last 15 years Kirsten has worked as a professional artist, concentrating, predominantly on abstraction.
