Kim Westfall‘s paintings are not about representation rather they are about paint and its very materiality. Her brush strokes are loose and energetic, her colours vibrant. Her approach to art making renders beautiful paintings, work that the Japanese would describe as ‘heta uma’ (which loosely translates as good sense and ‘bad’ technique).
Westfall’s compositions are a celebration of colour, form, the very act of painting, using a brush. The kind of painting I love.
If you’re in New York you can see her work at BAM, the Peter Jay Sharp Building, 30 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn.
