Hawaii Calls- Artist as Collectors #6Nanci Hersh
A.Kimberlin Blackburn and I first met many years ago when we were given a show together at the Art Loft in Honolulu, which has sinced evolved into Fine Art Associates. Kim has her own unique visual language, seeped in nature, mystery and lore. She works with a variety of materials from paint to beads to fibre- all richly colored, textural and magical.
When I left the islands to get married and return to my Jersey roots Kim gifted Scott and I a wedding present; artwork of hers -my choice. Fittingly, the painting that I chose is titled Hawaii Calls for You. The right choice she said, as she knew that regardless of where we live, Hawaii would always call.
She was right. This piece reminds me of our friendship, a place I will always love, and Kim’s commitment to her own voice as an artist.
The power of art- to inspire, evoke and remind us of who and what we love.
