Kristina Lim is known for her vibrant landscapes captured with the bleeding translucency of watercolors and the thick intensity of water miscible oils. “The solidity of a mountain peak jutting out of fog, the waves breaking in a green blue ocean – I’m inspired by nature’s uncompromising force. Like the mariner shooting the albatross we are destroying what saves us.”
Artist StatementThe solidity of a mountain peak jutting out of fog, the waves breaking in a green blue ocean – I’m inspired by nature’s uncompromising force. Like the mariner shooting the albatross we are destroying what saves us.
The mountains have been my redemption. When the pieces of my life cracked and fell apart like a jackhammer on porcelain, I found solace in climbing mountains and volcanoes, swimming in the Amazon and the Pacific, and painting those moments of peace, wonder, and beauty. I let the physicality of medium – the bleeding pigment of the water color run and create clouds, light, space, and waves. Or how the thick painterly quality of the oils work to create solid mountains and expressive light-touched clouds. The medium and my physical experience with place guide the process.
There is so much in life we try to control and predict. Nature at least is honest; there is no facade of day after day of unchanging normalcy. Life mimicking life much like art responds to life through a watery whisper of clouds and the strength of a purple white snow capped volcano.
