Kim Booker (BA Fine Art, 2019) is a London based painter who works from her studio in Croydon. Booker’s process is gestural and intuitive; paintings are constructed through repeated negotiations between the drawn image and its erasure. Her work freely references the human form via erotic imagery, art history and personal experience. Compositions are awkward and ambiguous, often fragmenting and desexualising the figure, exploring ideas surrounding the nature of existence, beauty and love. Previous exhibitions include: Oxlade Soup, Terrace Gallery, London; The Top 100, London; New Paintings, Galerie Dutko, Paris; Bodies and their spaces, Grove Collective, London; After Hours, Bowes Paris Gallery, London; Galerie Tassilo Usner at Parallel Vienna; and Exceptional, Collyer Bristow Gallery, London. Booker’s work has been placed in private collections in Europe and the USA.
This painting is part of a series of works made in June 2021 in response to a difficult period for the artist.
