Kira McCarthy (b.1998, UK) is a visual artist based in South East London whose practice utilises painting, photography and film to bring to light the power and potential of female relationships. Whether they may be sexual or platonic, exploring how the ubiquitous nature of technology acts to undermine these bonds is evermore important for both women and men living in a capitalist and patriarchal world. Kira believes female connections are an incredibly crucial aspect of survival against modern-day society due to their uncompromising ability to provide nurture, safety, comfort, intimacy and love. By portraying scenes of simultaneous intimacy and disconnect, Kira believes such visual conflicts are needed to urge the viewer to question what happens when these alliances are tested. Kira lives and works in London, UK.
