I love going to Art Exhibitions and I look out for new ones to go to constantly. I love to be inspired by fellow creatives and artists. I find these are the people who exude a high level of motivation, inspiration and have great energy. Kim was no exception.
I was very impressed as soon as we entered the Merenda Contemporary. The beautiful old Fremantle building was impressive with high ceilings and an open plan ambience of possibility. “So hollow, so pure” is her first exhibition and for a young artist starting in the highly competitive world of art, I think she will be very successful.
Her paintings elicit an energy, a mood, and really capture the emotions of her subjects. She does this so well it almost feels personal, like we are seeing into their souls. They reveal wounds, conflicts, sorrow, challenge, mixed with intention, motivation and determination. I really loved the use of colour and her improvised thick and contrasting detailed flowing brush strokes. She paints with confidence and intuition and I can feel the energy coming out of her paintings, which I love.
I walked away from the exhibition feeling inspired and compelled to write about this young amazing artist. I wish her the very best in her endeavours and hope she can continue to produce amazing work. I love to see amazing art, to me art is not valued by society enough. I wish we could provide more grants for start up artists who are brilliant and could be nurtured and supported to grow in their creative pursuits. If only I had a million dollars…
