Kidd Murray is a visual artist whose works question ideas of the unnatural and natural, and the artificiality of nature as a result of interference by man. Kidd is interested in the processes, tools and structures implemented by society as a means to modify and dominate our immediate natural environment. Gardens, parks and other green spaces nestled in amongst urban areas feature heavily in Kidd’s work, as she explores the systemisation and design of these natural patches. Kidd often adopts elements of several landscapes and merges them to create a fictional terrain, inviting the viewer to escape into a colourful, dream-like realm. Through creating visual work, Kidd aims to communicate and question the possibility of naturalness, and the decorative and ornamental elements of our designed, modified surroundings. Kidd lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland.
