Kirsty Lackie (b.1989) is a Glasgow based artist. She completed her BA (Hons) in Communication Design at The Glasgow School of Art in 2018, and since graduating has been developing her painting practice. Lackie has exhibited across the U.K. with her most recent being a solo show at The Alchemy Experiment.

    “ A touch of the surreal, a poetic sharpness, often simply a thought inspired by the awkwardness of everyday encounters. Over the years I’ve found my work moving into those sorts of areas most. A sense of my own guilt hangs over many pieces, and I try and rail against it with humour or temper or something rebellious. A sense of my womanhood often appears, as does routine, as does indulgence and decadence too. But the work can only be really understood by the work, it says what it is, in the most succinct way possible. ”
