"Elegy," 42 x 48 in., acrylic on linen
Kilgore's early paintings were informed by the English Terrain, particularly by prehistoric earthworks and stone circles found throughout Britain. At the time living in London, Kilgore was admitted to the John Moores Liverpool Exhibition XI and the JMLE XII, when her art work was purchased by the Sheffield City Art Museum.
After a residency at the Polli Talu Arts Center in rural Estonia, Kilgore's composition turned skyward and she continues to have the sky dominate the picture plane. An intuitive painter, Kilgore has a delicate approach with paint and color on the linen surface. She is able to capture the nuance of atmosphere and light across the landscape.
