Kylie Farrelly

Colour In Your Life Kylie Farrelly

Featured artist Kylie Farrelly appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Two (2). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Kylie Farrelly was born and raised in Brisbane. She taught Art as a Secondary teacher in 3 Queensland High schools for 8 years before having her children and then forging her career in the art world by establishing her art Studio Gallery and classes.

Kylie has been living just outside the center of Brisbane for 11 years now and has grown to love what Brisbane has to offer her as an artist, mother, and wife. She spends many hours on the weekends with her family and friends discovering parks, bikeways, and the cultural hubs of the city.

“Bris-Vegas has a sense of never-ending energy and activity. Capturing this in a painting is what I love to do. The interaction with the image and the viewer while I paint is so fulfilling as they recognize locations within the landscape. The personal connection to each piece is different for each person who looks at the works. Connecting to an image is important and adds ownership to the painting; whether it is a link with work or residential place, a park or a reminder of a great trip on the river.”

Kylie works mainly in acrylic, with which she incorporates a variety of media to enhance the textural outcome of her work. Her paintings invite you to feel the energy of each piece. She uses a bold color palette to capture the energy she draws from this vibrant young city. Her use of tone in her compositions creates a sense of depth and perspective within her work. The images are not always meant to be realistic but are easily recognizable. The paint is applied in layers of pure color, often using colors that have little resemblance to the real structure. Her paintings are sometimes referred to as possessing a naïve quality with a mature approach to mark-making.

    What a disappointment to log in after a while to check the earlier episodes that I used to enjoy watching to get inspired, are no longer available unless I pay to upgrade to ‘premium’ to enjoy again.

    This show could’ve been a wonderful vehicle for artists and the general public to get excited about art and I was even toying with the idea of paying to be on an episode. No more, this is one of the reasons art is becoming the playground of only the rich.

    An incredible shame, I anticipate this post will get moderated & disappear into the ether – but I’d say I’m not Robinson Crusoe with my opinion.

      Hi Moncks,

      I am sorry to hear you are disappointed. We have managed to bring the show to our fans for free for over 5yrs now and unfortunately the fee artists pay does not cover the costs of production. We receive absolutely no funding and we need funding to be able to keep bringing this amazing show to our fans. Our hope is that our community support us, by each paying a small fee so that we can continue to bring the arts to everyone. Unfortunately nothing in life is free, as much as we would love to be able to give away every episode forever we just don’t have the money to do so.
