Kari Lee McInneny McRae
Kari Lee McInneny McRae reflects on the relationship between fundamental interactions of colour, texture and shape, and the primitivism of our instinctive reactions.
Using sculptural materials; ceramic, wood and resin, Kari Lee questions the boundaries between art genres or mediums such as painting, drawing, sculpture and craft. She creates functional and non-functional pieces- playing on the idea of fragile strength.
With an unapologetic emphasis on the felt experience of the artwork Kari Lee questions the value of its therapeutic potentiality. Her pieces speculate on the significance and efficacy of common therapeutic tropes associated with nature and the use of colour and textured sculptural materials to create a tangible sensitivity for the viewer.
