LINE, LIGHT and COLOUR
by Kim Cody
Riverside Café Gallery, Farnham Maltings | 30 March – 25 April 2019
The Riverside Café Gallery is delighted to welcome back Kim Cody with an exhibition of her latest abstract works concerned with LINE, LIGHT and COLOUR.
Kim’s work is derived from the landscape but is an emotional rather than figurative response to the environment. Her paintings are made up of lines, shapes, tones, textures and colours taken from drawings and watercolour sketches made outside in the landscape. Kim’s sketch books serve to record observations, sensations and quotations which can then be reworked back in the studio but paintings sometimes begin with memories that have unconsciously lodged themselves in her mind.
Sometimes lines act as boundaries which contain the other elements. In some areas the colours dominate, occasionally overlapping or overwhelming each other. Sometimes clearly defined shapes occur but some are distorted, lost or submerged. In order to extend an idea or the size of a painting Kim will often work using multiple canvases.
Kim was born and educated in the south of England and was a teacher of art and design for thirty-five years before moving in 2002 to Brittany to live and work for twelve years. Her work is in private collections all over the world and she exhibits extensively in France and the United Kingdom. Kim now lives in Farnham and has a studio in Rowledge where visitors are welcome by appointment.
