Paintings by Julia Latein-Kimmig
Acrylic (and other media and materials) on canvas
A love for life’s colors, and appreciation for discovering objects with character, and respect for composition and dynamic tension find their way in Julia Latein-Kimmig’s new series, “Mix No Match.” Inspired by a three-year stay in Istanbul, Turkey, the artist starts her paintings with a wide mix of colors and materials, supported by a wild variety of brushes, old toothbrushes, and weathered vegetable or wallpaper brushes–every brush is welcome. Torn pieces of discarded drawings or neglected studies, street finds, and newspaper rip-outs enjoy getting a second chance on life. Taking the lead, charcoal, graphite and oil bars find their way onto the canvas, stirring up an unruly mix of form and color, taking the artist on a unique journey, which thrives on a dynamic jumble of color and form. The result opens a window in how the artist interprets her mix of what is obvious to the eye as well as to what is easily passed by and overlooked.
