Everywhere one looks in nature, one can find colors, movement, texture, and rhythm. However, it takes a skillful artist to properly capture these elements in a beautiful way. This painter has it mastered.
Opening Saturday August 6 at Carmel, California’s James J. Rieser Fine Art, “Rhythms in Nature” is a compelling display of profound beauty from the hand of skillful artist Kim Lordier. Featuring a number of the artist’s newest pictures, the exhibition highlights once more Lordier’s keen observation and sensitivity through award-winning landscapes. Twenty-five pastels in total compose the show, which includes stunning works such as “Whisper,” “Elkhorn Memory,” and “Wild Wind Blows, Asilomar.”

Via the gallery webpage: “Native to the San Francisco Bay Area and a 1989 graduate of the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, Kim has been a competitive horseback rider and painted most of her life. After college, she flew with a major air carrier, turning to painting full time after the events of September 2001. Utilizing a rich palette and strong design, she captures the abstract qualities of light as it plays upon the landscape. Inspired by the early California Impressionists and Taos Society of Artists, Kim paints the western landscape of our times.”
“Rhythms in Nature” opens on August 6. To learn more, visit James J. Rieser Fine Art.
