Kim Kimbro is a painter of the in-between. Stylistically, she operates along the borderlands of representation and abstraction, with a palette that straddles the real and the unnatural, and an inferential technique that threatens to dissolve her figures. She is most widely known for psychologically affecting portraits of wildlife, whose shifting consciousnesses hover on the liminal border between life and death. In her newest work, Briar Rose, or The Faerie's Revenge, Kimbro confronts another kind of in-between: the process of self-realization. Though they are portraits of adolescents, in these paintings, Kimbro's true deeper subject is the dawning of awareness and wisdom in our collective inner-child. Her signature style of ambiguous settings, interpretive colors, fleeting brushwork, and a sense of isolation among mysteries all continue to animate these works.
