Kira McCarthy (b.1998, UK) is a visual artist based in London whose practice utilises painting, photography and film to bring to light the power and potential of feminine 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 and love. By portraying scenes of simultaneous intimacy and disconnect, Kira believes such visual conflicts are needed to urge the viewer to question what truly happens when these alliances are tested.
