Kirsty Oliver’s work explores the concept of home, identity and belonging by borrowing visual elements from cultures she is connected to. Kirsty uses them to portray her identity. A recent trip to Bahrain (the Middle East) sparked already growing feelings of connection to this Islamic country, and influenced Kirsty to explore the cultural identity of the country she was born in. Due to her family connection to the Middle East, Kirsty has a strong foundation for her artwork. Kirsty’s current work includes 2D ink drawings on paper using Islamic patterns and wood carvings using New Zealand native wood. These materials and visual elements show the connections between Kirsty, the Middle East and New Zealand which portray her identity and concept of home and belonging
