Solo Art Exhibition by Kimberly Nysse
November 15, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - December 18, 2019 @ 12:00 pm
A solo art exhibition by Kimberly Nysse opens with a reception on November 15 and runs through December 18 at the Bradley Art Gallery on the Lakeland University Campus, Plymouth, Wisconsin. The show, entitled True Story, contains works from a new series and examples of work in different media. “Kimberly was chosen (for this exhibit) for being one of the most significant artists associated with Sheboygan Visual Artists” William Weidner, Associate Professor of Art, Director-Bradley Gallery. Kimberly’s background and education are in costume design for the theatre. The connection from stage to canvas is apparent. Her art is bold, saturated in intense color, and larger than life. Working mainly with acrylic on hand-stretched canvas, Kimberly’s style ranges from realism to the abstract, with carefully measured geometry forming the backgrounds and patterns seen throughout her pieces. Although her self-portraits are intensely personal, they also reveal universal emotion as they concretize the fundamental, yet ever-changing, views of herself and her existence. Kimberly has the power to bring the widest metaphysical abstractions into the immediate. Her question with every creation is: Is this worthy of being called “the truth of it?” She is a student at Holy Family College and lives and works in Sheboygan.
