Kimberly Riner Artist Statement

The experiences and emotions of our lives make up who we are. Layers of life's events build us, mold us, and shape us. Simply put, my work is inspired by memories of my life's experiences.

Such as memory is often untrue to the actual experience, my work is an abstraction of the emotion and memory that dent and swells the landscape of my life. Through the medium of clay, I add and cut and mold the medium for visually creating my unique memories. The molding and shaping of this earthly element, the addition and subtraction process of working with clay, creates a metaphor for how my life has evolved. I have found that as my work develops, I see elements of nature emerging from the adding, molding, and carving. My creation may begin with an exploration in form or texture, but it morphs into the emotions or "significant form" of the essence or meaning of a specific memory. These artists' elegant, biomorphic forms appeal to my sense of creating memories.

With my sculpting and molding comes the movement of the natural world--curves of nature that grow from the basis of my childhood, that move with memories, that morph into the natural adult world, and shape into the memories that give spark to my life and to my work.

Memories come with light and shadows, curves and lines; my creations are born of my memories. They are abstract representations of the inner nature of my life's landscape.
