L. Kimberly Gillespie
I work in drawing, painting, mixed media and installation. My recent drawings and installations depict imagery of clustered abstract patterns and shapes that collide with recognizable imagery to portray anything from mundane interactions to catastrophic events. Environments collide: one system appears to intrude upon another, but it's unclear which system is invading and which one is under attack. Beneath a veneer of ambiguity and chaos lies order in a space where both systems are just vying to survive.
