KIMBERLY KIEL – ON THE SURFACE
Exhibition opening Thursday, June 2nd 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Running until Monday, June 13th.
EXHIBITION STATEMENT: “Representing one of the things I'm most drawn to, 'on the surface' is about just that - the surface of the canvas. The very the tactile surface of it. The texture; the marks and strokes, drips & dribbles; the thick, creamy oil paint mixed in its combination of colour; the energy and the vibrancy in that very surface.” – Kimberly Kiel
In Kimberly Kiel’s second solo exhibition at The Avenue Gallery, the artist has created a special collection of works showcasing her signature use of impasto and fearless use of colour. Bold florals, energetic figures and powerful treescapes.
An original from Saskatchewan, Kimberly moved to Calgary in the mid 90's to continue operating her financial planning practice. After 10 years of utilizing her talents in that area, she decided it was time for a change and sold her practice in early 2003 to take up life as an artist. She now resides in Balgonie, Saskatchewan with her husband and two young sons.
