What is painting? For New York City Medium Rare Artist Kim Arrow, the answer is “an entryway into the sublime”. Kim Arrow uses unique and unconventional techniques and materials to make paintings that do just that; you aren’t sure where your foot stands exactly, or why seemingly realistic wood looks like it’s been touched by something otherworldly. Kim Arrow’s approach to art mimics the later years of Picasso and Braque, being led by the question: how can I challenge and improve upon what we know about painting? Experimenting with new textures and handmade paints, painting on unique surfaces like marble, porcelain, and MDF board cut to freehand drawing size, Kim Arrow’s paintings are both streamings of a personal subconscious and universal images in one. Kim Arrow studied at The School of Visual Arts in NYC.
