Kim Van Someren exhibit at Bridge Productions.
I laughingly told Sharon my one sentence review of the show is: “this is totally my jam”.
I’m in awe of Kim’s markmaking and how she has created a little world from various shaped and patterned forms, which I detect some humor folded in there. More clues to that nature come from the titles: Hooded Scoper, Reeler, Indexer, Troller. Each piece exudes funny and somewhat lumbering personality; I think that’s the best way I can describe the work. On the technical end of things it has been created by an assortment of printmaking processes including drypoint, collage, sugarlift, aquatint, porchoir.
On the wall directly outside of the gallery is the gorgeous
Gusted Hitch whose transparency and size is covetable.
Gallery owner/curator/director Sharon Arnold has written a beautiful essay about the exhibit here.
Into Its Own Echo, opens today, Saturday 13 October
(opening reception is 6-9pm).
Bridge Productions is open Saturdays 12-7pm
Kim’s website is here.
I’m in love with this show. You should go see it.
