artist statement
Currently, Kimberley's medium of choice is painting. She paints in acrylics, on canvas and on paper. Her recent paintings are expressions of inner landscapes which at times refer to patterning found in her earlier work. The earlier works were often about the idea of home and the various patterning within it, such as wallpaper and repetition. Her recent work has become more abstract relying solely on colour and texture to express herself.
For Kimberley it is best if the end result is completely unknown at the beginning of a painting. Her process involves making decisions about colour and texture on an intuitive basis, editing areas as she works. The paintings express her own creative journey. The completed paintings are filled with colors, textures and shapes, which through balance and composition appeal to the eye.
