Kit Porter (b. 1983) is a mixed media artist living and working in Beaufort, South Carolina. Porter received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from the University of the South in 2005. She has a deep-seated interest in the coastal environment, and more specifically in the way objects left by the sea are broken down over time. Through a personally-developed abstract language, her work explores the concept of diminution, and presents collections of fragments as a metaphor for the fragility of the physical world.
Kit’s work has been exhibited in group shows nationally, and has been written up in various publications such as Thalia Magazine and The Earth Issue. Her work can be found in private collections throughout the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe. She is represented in the United States by Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia, Exhibit by Aberson in Tulsa, Oklahoma and SEA Contemporary Art Space in Rosemary Beach, Florida.
