Kym Barrett at Tusk Gallery

April 15th, 2018BlogNo Comments »

We at Tusk Gallery are fortunate to introduce Kym Barrett to our stable of artists! Kym is a landscape artist focusing on the experimentation and organic nature of cold wax.

Having studied Fine Arts at Brisbane College of Art, Kym has worked with a range of mediums including drawing and painting. From the discovery of cold wax, Kym has combined these mediums together.

Her work has evolved rapidly becoming much more “abstract, luminous and intuitive” in recent years.

With the influence of expressionist painters and their use of mark making, Kym discovered the cold wax medium through internet research including studying other cold wax artists such Rebecca Crowell from the US. After exploring as much as she could online, she began working and experimenting with this medium. As Kym explains, “cold wax medium is a smooth, soft paste-like substance – a blend of beeswax and solvent”. She will then mix this medium with oil paint and apply many layers to a rigid surface like plywood.
