Kim Roberts is a Colorado artist who divides her time between the Denver area and the beautiful San Luis Valley enclave of Crestone, tight under the western flanks of the stunning Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
"I’m fascinated by the ever-changing moods of the natural world--the color of uranium mountains at sunset, purple snow shadows on a cactus field, or the sky’s electric intensity before a thunderstorm. I’m also interested in the moods, or states of mind evoked by being in nature, and enjoy the challenge of expressing these emotions in color and form.
"Having spent much of my adult life as an expat in South Asia, I’ve seen how art connects us to each other in a way that transcends culture. How language influences what we see--or don’t see. How emotional states are shared universally, and how they can be communicated by a simple gesture, image or tone.
"Each piece I create is an attempt to plant a seed of awareness, and to invite the viewer into a deeper experience of their own awareness—a sort of meditation in action. My hope is to convey how art is a bridge to this experience of spaciousness in the mind and that this is what connects us all."
Kim's work is about space, whether it's the vast expanse of a desert landscape or the quality of mind that accommodates all that arises within it. She tries to capture the ineffable atmosphere of the beautiful San Luis Valley and Sangre de Cristos mountain range.
