“Kayaking through mangroves in Southern Florida was an ethereal experience that led to a deeper understanding of my painting,” says artist Kim Sobel. “I found myself completely enthralled by the complexity of this natural habitat, struck by the similarity to elements I pursue in my paintings: the fluidity of water, the endless, jumbled ropy roots, the pulsing forms mingling amongst intricacies. With intent to capture the unstoppable movement of nature I paint shifting layers steeped in color.
“Life revisits visions; experiences first remembered. Each return is an altered revelation. A first viewing is the beginning, paintings move on—nature’s ever-changing state is contrasted with a caught moment.”
