About Kimberley Kohan
There are no upcoming events
My inspiration is the untamed earth. Throughout the years, I have travelled extensively from the blistering, red reaches of Australia to wildest and iciest corners of the Pacific Northwest. When I paint, my aim is not to directly copy the travel photographs I have taken, but to translate them from one visual language to another. My best works are those which become tangible, tactile; they transport the viewer. My ultimate goal is that one might not simply ‘see’ a painting, but hear, smell, taste and feel a place or a moment in time. Throughout my travels, one common thread rings true: the more I see, the more I appreciate the importance of conservation. Because my process involves taking the time to truly get to know a region- its history, its people, its eco-system- I have come to appreciate that these wild respites, which seem so far from city life, are not as removed as we think, and they are vanishing faster than we can possibly imagine. I want to tell my work on Artfinder so that I might continue to finance my dream of seeing the world and painting its hidden treasures.
