I love these works by Kirra Jamison. The free-flowing compositions have a psychadelic twist, and the combination of translucent backgrounds with solid, bright foregrounds makes the colours glow with an amazing hyperreality when you see the works in real life. Kirra Jamison's solo exhibition "Spirit is a bone" is on show now at Sophie Gannon Gallery in Melbourne, Australia until May 14.
