Here are a few photographs of the Kimz*Met art show at Argyle Fine Art in Halifax Nova Scotia on view until October 1st. Works featured are by Kim Danio, Kim Eddy and Kim Floyd. The opening was well attended by phony Kims with name tags and we were on CTV Morning Atlantic.
KIMZ*MET is this Friday, September 13th from 6:30 to 8:30pm at Argyle Fine Art in downtown Halifax. This is a show of works made by myself and two fellow artists’ named Kim. Kim Danio and Kim Eddy and I have been working toward this show since April 2019.
I have painted a series of dresses that connect us to the past, to family members and friends, to our passions and our personal lives. The dresses are carefully rendered with an element of fantasy as they float in front of a colourful backdrop.
Kim Eddy has made paintings inspired by her time in Bermuda and Nova Scotia. Though she is recognized mainly for her beautiful resin paintings depicting bird’s eye views of the beach, Kim decided to challenge herself with a series of hand bound books that share a little bit about her process and inspiration. She also produced a series of acrylic paintings on paper inspired by the same theme.
Kim Danio is an artist known for re-purposing shoes and handbags into playful sculpture that is reminiscent of folk art. In a culture and era where mass consumerism is the norm, Kim takes objects that would otherwise get thrown out and turns them into art objects. It is truly priceless to witness the viewers’ reaction to her art and suddenly noticing the “shoe” or “handbag”.
I welcome everyone to attend our show this Friday and if your name is Kim, please come and say hello!
Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. I decided it was a good time to post this painting of my wedding gown from 22 years ago.
