Bury St. Edmunds
Kimberly is an American artist based in Bury St Edmunds, England. A native of Washington State, she studied art & design at the Art Institute of Seattle. After a twenty year career in costume design, she rediscovered her love of painting. Her new work features vibrant abstract paintings and embellished giclee print work which regularly appears in print, galleries, commercial spaces and the homes of collectors the world over. The observable relationship between gravity, ink, paper and nature features in Kimberly's new fluid series. Delicate natural forms in large-scale compositions are produced by the spontaneity of poured ink and mica on canvas and paper. The pull of gravity is used to carefully control the layers in her paintings; brushwork is rarely used. Each piece has several veils of colour that blend directly on the substrate to create a collision of unexpected hues. Kimberly’s work resides in a surprising area where Art, Chemistry and Physics meet and overlap. The contradiction arising from the randomness of the pouring process is juxtaposed against the certainty of the visual outcome, particularly with regard to biomorphic shapes. Kimberly's work can be viewed at Larkview Studio, on the banks of the River Lark in Suffolk, England. By appointment only.
