Collection: Kim Taggart Collection
CURATED BY EVA REYNOLDS FINE ART GALLERY
Kim has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. Influenced by the Precisionist graphite style of Charles Sheeler, the emotional traits of Grant Wood, and the black and white contrast of Mable Dwight, her extreme graphite technique emerged as an emotional saturation of tones. Kim depicts her landscapes in energetic black and white tones, challenging the viewer to interpret a sunrise or storm without the element of color. She often names pieces after friends when the energy of the sky reminds her of a loved one.
