The collection of work depicts the relationship between everyday life and the surrounding land, focusing on the consistent detachment and transformation. The topological study focuses on the ground, exploring the self within the realities hidden beneath. Sculptures, objects and drawings are created from a practical and observed engagement with the environment and working material.

The works show was first shown online at Visual Arts Scotland REVERB exhibition, at https://www.visualartsscotland.org/blog-article/reverb--vas-annual-exhibition-now-open on the 19th March - 29th April 2022.

Kirsty's work challenges the audience to move closer and imagine the parts of the work that are not seen - to understand the inner world within, to look past the smooth veneer and recognise the underlying reality.
