Adopted at a young age, Kimberly Nysse’s search for self has been more intense than it is for most of us. Her self-portraits are a direct extension of that continuous search. “I acquire the deepest knowledge of myself by exploring the most intimate truths, and then abstracting from that perception of reality. ”Kimberly’s background and education are in costume design for the theatre. The connection from stage to canvas is apparent throughout her bold, saturated colors that are larger than life. Working mainly with acrylic on hand-stretched canvas, her style ranges from realism to the abstract, with carefully measured geometry forming the backgrounds and patterns seen throughout her pieces. Although her self-portraits are intensely personal, they also reveal universal emotion as they concretize the fundamental, yet ever-changing, views of herself and her existence.
