Kylie Matheson

An Odd Pair by Kylie Matheson at Quirky Fox

Kylie Matheson combines her passion for animals and art. Discovering clay in 2011, Kylie had worked in other mediums but explains nothing came as naturally to her as clay; clay can interpret texture, movement and depth much like that of animal fur and feathers.

After travelling NZ in her bus for seven years, Kylie spent a short time in Napier, where she was introduced to clay. Returning to Dunedin in 2014 she studied for my Diploma in Ceramics at Otago Polytechnic. She continues to work as a full-time artist from her Dunedin home studio.

Relationships and symbolism are recurring themes in Kylie's work: "in addition to an arrow tattoo that belonged to my beloved Grandfather. I use two red circles around the eye to represent the circle of awareness, both to the study of the animal and environment and to the interaction with the work itself. The sculptures are loosely textured and the work of the maker is evident in the clay."
