Kim Percy - Ballarat
Kim Percy has been working as an artist and within the art and design fields since 1993. Over the years she has built a name for herself as an artist who pushes the boundaries between art and design, photography and painting, sculpture and digital imaging. Kim is interest in what happens in the space between these disciplines and create abstract works that reflect or explore social and climatic issues like water resources, population migration, Buddhism and the effects of weather on our collective psyche.
Kim is also aware of the role digital technology plays for artists and the wider understanding of art. Many of her works reveal her working process in the form of engorged pixels, layered acrylic forms representing layers in Photoshop, or hand worked or drawn aspects. Kim asks her audience to recognise when they view art it is commonly through some sort of digital filter that may be the internet, a printed book or emailed image. Our experience is framed by the technology we use and therefore there is a warped perception of the artwork.
Kim has had over 15 solo exhibitions including a show in New York’s art precinct Lower East Side in 2016. In 2017 she had a floating installation of photo works for the Ballarat International Foto Biennale. In 2019 Kim will have a solo show at Artifact, NYC.
