Studio Visit: Kim Mintz

Perth/Boorloo-based artist Kim Mintz uses oil paints to blur, layer and duplicate her subjects. Through her work she seeks to capture and reflect the constant re-authoring of self within our Internet-obsessed times.

My studio is quite small, which I enjoy because I have paintings everywhere and I often take an element from a previous painting and push it further. I feel my most creative when I can feel temporary periods of isolation. This often happens at night where I can retreat and withdraw.
