Kimberly Joy Danielson has a BFA from the Ontario College of Art in drawing and painting.She holds a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from McMaster University, a medical degree from McMaster University, with a specialization in psychiatry and psychoanalysis.
My current body of work emerges as a culmination and synthesis of a lifelong practice of painting, psychoanalysis, and exposure to the colours, traditions, and handicrafts of Västerbotten Sweden and Telemark Norway, my cultural heritage. There is a strong tradition of beautifully woven textiles, carved wooden objects sometimes vibrantly painted, as well as birch root and birch bark baskets and knapsacks.
Earlier exploratory paintings were actual representations of these handicrafts paintedand carved directly into birch panels. My new work has evolved and become more abstracted. While still drawing from Scandinavian influences, my career as a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst has been woven into the process as well. Vibrant and sculptural, my current paintings are hand carved into thick layers of paint which reference a Scandinavian palette and the handmade carved traditions. The painting process is partially directed by free association which results in the painting emerging in an intersubjective space, in which I influence the painting and the painting influences me. The pieces I create often encapsulate an idea or experience which is pulled out of me through this process. The unconscious mind is referenced in two ways. First, the multiple layers of the painting are an allusion to the layered structure of the unconscious mind. Second, the semi-abstract forms are suggestive of a dream state, a window to theunconscious, where the meanings and objects are often disguised and distorted.The final work is open to and suggestive of multiple interpretations.
