Kimberly Trowbridge’s Archetypal Acts of Creation
Kimberly Trowbridge is an up-and-coming Seattle painter to watch. Self Reflect, her recent exhibition at Grey Gallery and Lounge was an exploration of the act of painting as psychological self-discovery. She is currently in two group shows: Color Key at the Painting Center in New York and Suspend at the Roots and Culture Contemporary Art Center, Chicago, along with fellow University of Washington MFA alum Michelle Bolinger.
Her new painting First Day, featured in the Chicago show, boldly identifies her own process with the archetypal act of Creation itself:
I am a sucker for insightful psychological narratives (bonus points for gorgeous handling of paint and a palette to make Hieronymus Bosch writhe in ecstasy!) so I look forward to big things from this consummately self-reflective artist.
