South African born, U.K based, Kim Smurthwaite, creates paintings with a focus on the dynamics in relationships and are centered around dialogues of duality.
Working responsively in mostly oil, acrylic and mixed media on canvas and linen, Kim's work is a lively interaction between gesture, brushstroke, fingers and paint. Through an energetic and ever-expanding mark making vocabulary, these paintings are intimate conversations that speak with a tangible optimism.
