Energetic Landscape Paintings Represent the Yin and Yang of Life

Kirsten Sims

Once again, Kirsten Sims has cap­tured an incred­i­ble ener­gy in her paint­ings that recall the spon­tane­ity of pen­cil sketch­es. Her lat­est series was cre­at­ed for the Tur­bine Art Fair in Johan­nes­burg, and they fea­ture vibrant out­door and indoor sce­nes that act as a yin and yang—the beau­ty of soli­tude, as well as the hus­tle and bustle of large groups. Each is live­ly in its appli­ca­tion of paint; the col­ors swirl and mix on can­vas, dif­fus­ing and abstract­ing the illus­tra­tions. It’s as if they rep­re­sent one long, fan­tas­tic dream… or bet­ter yet, a mem­o­ry!
