Lot 421 - Kim Booker - Torture Garden (2) After Rodin
Oil and Acrylic on Canvas
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Kim Booker’s practice is rooted in the tradition of painting and the history of modern art. Her work takes influences from German Expressionism, idiosyncratic British painting such as the work of Roy Oxlade, and American abstract expressionism, yet she reinterprets the tradition with a current perspective on contemporary conflicts surrounding identity, gender and relationships. Her paintings are semi-autobiographical, often featuring female figures in poses suggestive of an emotional state. Booker’s process and mark making are gestural and intuitive - the physicality of the act of painting is important. Working on large scale canvases, Booker’s paintings are an extension of her body and an evolution of her emotions.
