    KIM DUHAIME FINE ART

    I studied photography and design in Montreal (BFA, Concordia University, 1991), then worked in advertising as a graphic designer, typographer and art director for nearly twenty years. In 1998, I moved “up north” to the beautiful Laurentians, where I now work from my home studio in a little forest cottage and I can be immersed in nature, surrounded by the lakes, forest and mountains that I love. In 2009, having grown tired of using my creativity to sell other people’s ideas, I abandoned my design career to pursue my two passions: painting and skiing.

    * * *

    I describe my work as contemporary abstract expressionism.

    As an avid outdoorswoman, I first came to a love of painting through my close connection with nature. My initial focus as a painter was landscape, but I soon began to focus entirely on abstraction as I began to work more and more from intuition, response and presence.

    Art is both my meditation and adventure, and my approach to painting reflects this: my process is one of mindful play. I use acrylic paints and inks so that I can work with complete spontaneity – I’m very interested in pushing the boundaries of uncertainty about what may happen next as I paint. Water is my primary inspiration, in the form of rivers, lakes and oceans – my fascination is based on the changeability of water's contrasts, movements and beauty. Using a very personal lexicon of gestural marks, line, texture, organic shapes and liquid glazes, I build up multiple layers, allowing my curiosity to lead me through meandering explorations of the painting surface. I try to express an intangible visual quality that combines dynamic tension, depth of field and visual coherence, and my goal is that the viewer be drawn in by the rhythms of the colours, forms and multiple layers, which are intricately woven but not necessarily in balance.
