I pursue images of nature that settle themselves efficiently within an architectural scheme. Using the luscious hills and valleys of the Blue Ridge Mountains in my native state of Virginia as a source, I create work that speaks on a sub-conscious level, a level defined by our desires and dreams, our inspirations and aspirations. My emphasis is on life's enduring power to find splendor, to continuallly evolve into something truer, cleaner, more fragrant.
Vivid colors, watery texture, and crisp use of line invite the viewer to contemplate peace and strength in new dimensions, to evoke harmony, restore clarity, and celebrate new beginnings. Arousing liberation, my images possess a restorative power for some, a deep relaxation for others, and an enhancement of conscious reality for many. Ideally, my works should cleanse the soul, fill emotional gaps, relate a sense of wholeness, a sense of belonging... not only in the world, but to the world.
Of special note: Kim's work will be part of "Color Explosion," a selected group exhibition at La MaMa La Galleria, 6 East First Street, New York, New York, on December 26, 1997 through January 16, 1998.
