Kimberli Smith Artist Bio:
Creating abstract, minimalist paintings featuring the juxtaposition of graphic lines, color, and shapes. The conflict of opposing shapes being soothed by complementary colors. It is this play of opposites that create visual interest, curiosity, and sometimes an undercurrent of anxiety. Found objects and the natural world inspire me and painting is a means of escapism and dissociation from the outside world. I create paintings layer by layer, usually finding that what I take off the canvas is as important as what I lay down. Painting and drawing calms the chatter of unpleasant thoughts, self-perceptions, and emotions. It lets me recreate the outside world as seen through the lens of my experiences and discover new aspects of self which find their way onto canvas. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, I currently live in Hanover New Hampshire. I have been creating art in various forms throughout my life using different methods of application, color harmonies, movement, abstraction and surface textures to visually engage the audience. I have been featured in Catapult Magazine, and am a juried winner of the West Elm x Minted contest. My paintings are a piece of me and I feel a sense of loss when they leave, but I'm happy my art has found new homes in multiple private collections across the United States.
