Much of Kim’s work is inspired by the natural environment, primarily from in and around the Hinterland area that she calls home. This exhibition presents a collection of new and existing artworks across several different mediums within the printmaking genre.
Kim writes “Stepping in to a natural space, be it my garden, an afternoon country drive or a morning bush walk, affords me the opportunity to take a moment, stop and breathe.”
It calms me. It grounds me. It helps me manage my own mental health.”
Kim continues, “I am a printmaker, enjoying the process-driven art form in all of its inky glory. Through the meditative processes of printmaking, combined with my subject matter, I am connected to the present moment. Time stands still, sometimes for hours on end.”
Kim is one of the three subjects in the documentary, all of whom use some form of creative expression to manage their caring roles.
Kim adds “I am also the wife of, and carer for, my husband, a medically retired contemporary war veteran with PTSD and other injuries. My arts practice is my respite from the sometimes chaotic world we both live in and with.”
