Driven by a desire for raw authentic self-expression, Kim Hinkson delves into his innermost thoughts and galvanizes them into abstract works of acrylic on canvas. These bold and organic creations evoke beauty, power and inspiration of his surroundings. He chases bold ideas with a feverish passion and a deeply rooted need to create inspired by the likes of Jackson Pollock and Gerhard Richter.
Hinkson is a self-taught artist and painter. He feels a complete freedom and liberty around painting, and puts everything he has into each brushstroke. Constantly pushing himself emotionally and physically, he forces himself to look outside the box, utilizing all available resources to manipulate medium in a way that provokes viewers to feel an emotional connection to his work. He aims to create real, uncontrived experiences through his honest and genuine work.
On his work and process, he states, “I like the fact that there are no boundaries, and that is what really captures my imagination. It’s the ability to engage in a process which yields a result that is perfectly imperfect.”
