After the Flood—New Works by Don Kimes
March 20 through May 2, 2010
Don Kimes works in media ranging from acrylic paint and digital sources to steel, clay, and wood. He contemplates painting in the context of history and time. The sources for the work included in this exhibition are the remnants of images that had documented much of his life’s work destroyed in a 2003 flood. Kimes, a professor in the art department at American University, states that he is using the second part of his life to re-paint the first.
