First Friday Reception: October 2nd, 6-9pm
Kimi Kolba’s work explores the contemporary landscape at night. She asks the viewer to invest in a slow read of the work as to decipher it fully. Similar to the visual experience at night, the eye must be given time to adjust, allowing space for a concentrated awareness and a greater level of observation. With recurring ideas of solitude and silence, her work continues with an investigation and extends a curiosity and fascination towards the surrounding landscape, encompassing the new, the northwest urban and industrial, and the psychological.
Kimi Kolba is an artist living and working in Portland. She holds an MFA from Claremont Graduate University in Studio Art, Photography. She remains active in her community as an artist, gallery assistant, and performing and fine arts instructor. www.kimikolba.com
