Zoe Kirkwood creates vibrant painted, sculptural and installation works that engage with notions of contemporary excess and superabundance. Beginning as a painter, her most recent body of work has been concerned with investigating ways in which the visual extravagance and opulence of 17th century Baroque can be transposed into a contemporary art format to extend her painting practice. This extension of her painting practice seeks to reflect the complexities of the modern world.  Through the inclusion of sculpture and installation she creates spatially invasive works that actively engulf the viewer and challenge the traditional structure of the painting.

Zoe graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Visual Arts with Honours (First Class) in 2013.
