About Kimberly Perry Photography

"Art creates an experience. Sometimes these experiences are new and we get to explore things our mind has never touched on before. They might be fictional or real; still they fill us with emotions. Occasionally what we experience is drawn from reality- one we have seen before, or one we never knew existed. This is the allure of art. It elicits the human compulsion of curiosity."
Kimberly Perry is an emerging artist who works in wood, paint and alternative photographic processes. Her work explores the relationship between ourselves, and the world we live in. Her recent series, Walking Through Stones, focuses on the western tradition of burying our loved ones, and asks the viewer to stop and consider the presence of those cemeteries in the world.
Kimberly prints the images onto wood, using a modified version of the traditional Vandyke process. Through this method, the wood becomes part of the photo, melding image and canvas, and projecting both into the physical space of the viewer.
