Color + Shape
KIM S. UHLIK: ARTIST STATEMENT
As a trained cARTographer, I adhere to the principles of simplification, generalization, and selection, and thus to the use of (most often two-dimensional) "pure" geographic forms (point, line, triangles, quadrangles, and arcs / circles), alone and in combination.
When expressed using a palette comprised of the three primary colors foundational both to the additive and to the subtractive schema - and black and white - the resulting artwork exhibits crisp lines, well defined figures, distinctive colors, and ample "space" in which to roam, explore, and play.
Exclusive of my digital photography prints, my career-long preference has been for oil paint (and, more recently, acrylic) on large canvasses - reminiscent of the modernist painters - to produce contemporary works that "breathe," and are more human in scale: visually intriguing, yet accessible.
