The work of Kimberly Schaefer features colorful abstractions inter-layered with human figures. By representing the human form in this manner, Schaefer is able to investigate some of the larger ideas embodied in our humanity, centered on identity, relationships, and the play between the tangible and intangible. Inspired by the miraculous spectacle of the natural world, Schaefer focuses her work on the marvelous and energizing as well as the sometimes dangerous and harmful consequences of such emotions.
Artist Kimberly Schaefer will conduct a workshop that addresses the challenges faced when the human form is contrasted with abstraction. Working from a live model, the artist will lead participants through the various methods of drawing from life and how to achieve an accurate depiction of the human body. Participants will have the opportunity to explore these ideas and techniques personally with the artist.
