I HEARD A THOUSAND BLENDED NOTES
Khi-Lee Thorpe is a Melbourne based visual artist working primarily in abstract painting and collage using bold mark making techniques. She captures unexpected moments—the space between the noise, the beauty amidst the chaos. Spontaneous marks evolve into a thoughtful, at times explosive, synchronisation of standout colours and speculative tones, in layers of paint and collage on wood.
Khi-Lee graduated with First Class Honours from the Masters of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne University and also holds a Masters of Media and Communication from Swinburne University of Technology. Khi-Lee is a Worimi Woman from the Port Stephens Area of the Mid-North Coast of NSW. Solo exhibitions include Spaces Between Clamour at Fox Galleries (2017) and Home at Five Walls Project, Melbourne (2017). Group exhibitions include Conspicuous Presence at Trocadero Art Space (2018); Delve at The Crypt in the Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne (2018); The Deafening sounds of these Drawings at Kings ARI, Melbourne (2017); and Group Conversations; Australia’s Shame at The George Paton Gallery, Melbourne (2016).
