Festival Poster Artist
This year's art festival is special,it represents a new era of Art in Central Florida. Our community is bursting at the seams with creativity and what better way to show it off than by featuring Artists from the Central Florida area.
Kim found and continues to develop her voice through visual expression. The totemic sculptures she creates are influenced by the Modernism Movement of the early 20th century. Each sculpture is a collection of biomorphic forms used in a contemporary assemblage, then becoming a 3D canvas.
She believes that her work is a visual metaphor for embracing and celebrating individuality and diversity while creating interdependence and community. She hand builds each individual form with clay to represent a human characteristic. The incised marks offer a view of the emotions as she creates each piece and provide additional symbolism in the work.
Through her life experiences, formal education, and continued art practice, she has grown in self knowledge, and continued to develop her voice as an artist through abstract forms. While she personally celebrates and embrace diversity and enjoy interweaving a variety of people, creation of the totemic sculptures are symbolic, expressing her life choices through clay.
