Kimberley D’Adamo Green
Images from microscopes, google earth and drones are essential sources for my work. All are designed to make the viewer question our sense of scale, the way we measure the world according to our own size.
In my paintings, I shift the plane of the canvas to represent surfaces we overlook, capturing a sense of looking down onto a landscape from above, playing with size, relationship and juxtaposition of forms at various magnifications. Equally drawn to the petri dish as to Rothko, Monet and Frankenthaler, I apply impressionist and expressionist techniques to contemporary ways of viewing biological systems.
Most recently, my focus is on the impact of industrialization on water-dependent ecologies. How is contamination changing our water systems? My research continues to inform the art that I make.
