Kim Knoll & Americana

Inspired by nature and influenced by minimalism, my works on paper are composed from an abstract perspective.

I love living in the city of Chicago, but I often crave spending time outside exploring lakes, mountains, forests, and coastlines through hiking and camping. These experiences have become the inspiration behind my work, in essence, to bring the outdoors into an urban environment with a unique take. Using acrylic, watercolor, ink, graphite, spray paint or charcoal, and a refined color palette, I think of shapes, movements, and textures found in nature to inform and guide each painting. I try to bring a positive feeling into my art, pulling from joyful memories or a peaceful mood. I hope my art brings that same joy and peace to others and offers a momentary escape from the everyday.
