About The Artwork

This humpback whale is from a series entitled To My Widow, which chronicled the tragic final voyage of British explorer Captain Robert Scott to the South Pole. Diane Calder's review of the exhibition: Transposing ghosts of photographic imagery into haunting paintings through various degrees of allegorical remove, Kim Kimbro explores the final voyage and tragic death of British explorer Robert Falcon Scott. Borrowing from J. M. W. Turner's habit of endowing romantic seascapes with literary themes, Kimbro resurrects fragments of the farewell letter to Scott's wife found on his frozen corpse and appropriates them as titles for her uncanny depictions of sled dogs, sailing vessels, and large marine creatures. Scott's final words thus underscore our awareness of life's fragility and transient nature. Kimbro's ability to sculpt form and pull texture out of opaque passages and liquid washes of oil paint makes pleasurable a close inspection of her work. By maintaining veiled, matte-like finishes, and by purposefully referencing flaws found on the surface of the archival photographs she uses as source material, the artist deepens the sense of mystery in these images. Shifting through a nuance of colors but favoring ultramarine blue, Kimbro intensifies the chilly sense of isolation and loss conveyed by her solitary figures, adrift in the Antarctic. by Diane Calder THE MAGAZINE This stretched canvas is signed and dated on the back. It does not require framing and is wired for hanging. It ships in a wooden crate.

Los Angeles-based painter Kim Kimbro creates psychologically charged animal portraiture that is characterized by bold color combinations and sensitively rendered subjects. Stylistically, Kimbro operates somewhere between the real and the unreal, creating an atmosphere that invites personal introspection. Her concern is to convey the frailty of human experience within these often life-sized portraits. Kim Kimbro received a BFA from the Parsons School of Design/New School for Social Research in New York, and has been exhibiting since 2007. Her paintings can be found in private collections throughout North and South America, Europe and Australia.
