From paintings of aerial landscapes that observe the way water carves through a land mass, to a series of marine debris paintings that examine the way an object left by the sea is broken down, I've refined my painting technique to mimic a process similar to erosion.

Kit Porter

About the Artist


Kit Porter (1983-2023) was a mixed media artist living and working in Beaufort, South Carolina. Drawn to the coastal landscape, Kit’s paintings abstract and fragment natural forms to act as a metaphor for the fragility of the physical world. In Kit’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.
