Introducing Kimmie Hamm

Introducing Kimmie Hamm, a talented Texas artist described by renowned communications specialist Jayne Lybrand as Art Deco blended with technical fusion.  Songwriter Mickey Newbury once told me he could never recreate, to his complete satisfaction,the sounds he heard in his head.  I was reminded of his words when Kimmie   was explaining how she could never put on canvas or paper the pictures she sees in her mind.   IMG_0011

 Below are some of her paintings, and her thoughts of how they go from mind to canvas, or paper, and even some wearable art in collaboration with Vida.

Fire Cave: Swirls of color meshing in a cyclone of fire inspired by visions of volcanic caves and stalagmites hidden deep in the earth.  Perhaps a secret magical world where color begins…Kimmie

Go Where Music Takes You

Music can take you to fantastic and fanciful places. This classical guitar is serenading a mermaid and a school of fish under the sea.  I can see in my mind how the sound waves resonate through the water and the mermaid’s hair causing her to stop and be in the moment allowing her mind to imagine many possibilities

Future visions of world conflict and a new world order come to mind. I can feel the approaching army.  Here and there, boots thumping the ground in unison. But not everyone in the city feels the same. Some are proud, some are anguished, some are defiant and some stand in silent disbelief.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Artist Statement

Everywhere you dream to go can become a part of you. 

Everywhere you have been is a part of you. Kimmie

I am an explorer and optimist at heart, so when I set out to create something one word always comes to mind: Possibilities.
 

Through my art I am able to explore the visions in my mind, everything from a small flower or blade of grass to distant worlds filled with whimsy and thoughts of what if…….?

My adventurous spirit is firmly anchored in love of home and family, with a deeply rooted love of the beauty and wonderment of nature.

My maternal grandmother told me, “If you have strong roots your spirit can fly anywhere and still return home.” She has left this physical world but her wisdom remains with me and continues to spark and influence my imagination.

Perhaps the explorer in me comes from my immigrant ancestry. My great grandfather’s family traveled to America on a steam ship in 1874. I can imagine them traveling for what must have seemed like an eternity.  I try imagine what they might have been thinking.  I often try to express their willingness to embrace the unknown, their anticipation of infinite possibilities in my art…Kimberly Klose Hamm
