Kim Bender Member Since April 2008 Artist Statement Hi guys, welcome to my site.
I paint dreamy realistic and abstract. I need this change for a balance in my artistic life. I have been living in europe for most of my adult life traveling to different country's for inspiration for my art and for my personal growth. I find that in each of the country's I have lived in, I have picked up a little of the culture and style of that land and in total this has helped me to better understanding my art and to convey on canvas my personal and inner feelings. I hope that you will enjoy the difference's of style. As you see I enjoy abstract in its purest form and also my dreamy realistic flowers have a slight infusion of Georgia O'Keeffe's style that I picked up from my time spent living in California. My favorite painters are Jackson Pollock, Tamara de Lempicka, Paul Gauguin and of course Georgia O'Keeffe.
I hope you enjoy the visit to my site and my paintings give you pleasure. It would be nice to hear your response to my art! Thank you.
