More on the artist:
Kim Darling works in range of media from ranging from painting, sculpture and performance. Her work explores ideas of gender, social and political issues and taboo breaking. Drawing upon historic and contemporary icons from our unconscious reality, this work explores a sacred/profane dichotomy using mark making generated in a method similar to automatic writing. This content is drawn from myths and is seen in fragmented and compartmentalized layers. Graphic shapes are synthesized into a seamless, cacophonous flow, harnessing a frenzied vigor.

Darling holds a BFA in studio art from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She participates in residencies throughout the country and has been featured in regional solo and group shows. Darling's passion for collaboration has led her to social practice and partnerships with local, national, and international artists and arts organizations.
