Notes


Kim Booker’s practice has roots in German Expressionism, idiosyncratic British painting such as the work of Roy Oxlade, and American abstract expressionism, yet presents a uniquely female point of view and a painterly language of gestural abstraction combined with figurative drawing. Her works are dramatic in their narratives and use of colour and expressionistic in the way they depict form, with her drawn line ranging from naïve to classically conceived. Her paintings are often emotionally charged and are intellectually rigorous in their examination of the history of painting. 

“I am interested in colour, in the process of making a painting through instinctive response and action, and reworking until an image feels right. I am resistant to any form of preconceived end result. Painting, for me, is about understanding what it is I am in dialogue with - in terms of my source material and also the process of painting itself. Every painting is a struggle as I try to figure something out through paint that it is difficult to express in words.” - Kim Booker, 2021
