Lost to the Universe – artist spotlight

‘I was very pleased to find out that I was exhibiting at the Bethlem Gallery. This last decade I have been concentrating with work of forms and colours. My poetry expresses hard times in the past and optimistic views of the future. I feel that now I look forward in colour instead of looking at the past in black and white. Geometric shapes fascinate me because of my mathematical background. I feel that I am where I want to be in life and this show is the pinnacle of this.

I refound a love of art late through my recovery. I stopped doing art after my A Levels, my interest just went. Then I got really unwell and my skills seemed to vanish. I am pleased to say my skills returned, but with an interesting new understanding of shape and colour. I am now extremely prolific in both art and poetry . I don’t know how this happened but I am grateful.

I don’t start with anything in mind, I just make the first few strokes and when it’s starting to look like something, I focus and get lost in it”

-Kim

 

The people didn’t matter

Sitting on a green chair

On a green carpet

Takes me far away

I make patterns in the fabric

I didn’t know what day it was

I didn’t even choose my clothes this morning

Lost to the Universe

But connected by the fibres of a hideous green carpet
