The Series

DISRUPTOR

Kim McAninch's work involves disruption as an evolutionary process.  In each painting, she finds ways to incorporate painterly marks which temporarily interrupt the path of the eye, giving hints of perceived information.  These DISRUPTORS ultimately create energy and depth.

HEAD & HEART

 Exhilarated by the visual dance between the figurative and abstract, the artist strives to offer more information with less detail.  Each is a journey unto its own. for both the artist and the viewer.  Kim McAninch is using her unique voice, striving for harmony of color and rhythm in each composition, offered from her head & heart.

BOAT

The BOATS Series is the artist's longest body of work.  All are created with palette knife and brushes for varied texture and direction, which featuring reflections and movement in each.   The subject of the boat has been merely the artist's means of showing  her unique strokes and mark-making techniques-certainly a virtuous expression.

DUNES

The eye makes a way to the water through the dunes and sea grass. The DUNES Series fills a space with color and breezy beach mood. Each is an exploration of gestural abstraction and are created with a palette knife and brushes.

WHERE THE LEMON TREES BLOOM

Goethe's novel, WILHEM MEISTER"S APPRENTICESHIP opens with one of the most famous lines in German poetry, an allusion to Italy: "Kennst du das Land, wo die Zitronen bluehn? (Do You Know the Land Where the Lemon Trees Bloom?) The words inspired many including Johann Strauss II in the lovely waltz, WHERE THE LEMON TREES BLOOM, Waltz, Op. 364, written in 1874. Colorful and lyrical the line is a yearning and evocation of the warm south. Kim McAninch is conducting a joyful and lyrical visual presentation, an expression of music and form. The inclusion of musical inspiration is part of her process, and the process is the medley of an artist. Inspired by Goethe, the artist is using her voice, striving for harmony of color and rhythm in each composition.

FLORAL

Light and fresh, the FLORAL Series showcases the artist's  inventive use of color and her trademark gestural technique.  She limits her palette to create unique pieces in this body of  body of work which compliments a wide variety of decorating styles.

Kim McAninch’s work on paper is a symphony of mediums: oil, oil pastel, ink, charcoal, acrylic and pencil on paper. Each piece contains that inexplicable magic that immediately catches your eye and keeps you looking for what feels like a lifetime. Though her work is abstract by nature, she never forgets to add a hint of a horizon line, which reminds the viewer of landscapes that only arise in their imagination.
