Kim Atlin paints in series as she works through a theme. Each piece informs the next. The progression of work continues until the excitement is gone. Kim usually has 2 or 3 series underway at any given time. Some develop slowly, and some burn hot and exude a sense of passion. It is her ideas and passion that direct the progression. Once the passion is gone, so too, is the series.
Kim’s latest body of work explores the beauty of natural gardens against urban backdrops. Places she observes. Places that inspire her.
Kim Atlin graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1988. She currently lives and maintains a studio in Toronto.
