Kit Porter (b. 1983) is a mixed media artist living and working in Beaufort, South Carolina. Drawn to the coastal landscape, Porter’s paintings abstract and fragment natural forms to act as a metaphor for the fragility of the physical world. In Porter’s paintings, tide-worn shells and stones polished by the ocean’s current become as smooth as petals while flowers become as ephemeral as the wind, echoing the persistence of time and the tenacity of nature.
