About the art
As seen in
"Into the Blue" is an image of a parking lot overlooking the beach & ocean in Forster, Australia. It is part of Kimberly Poppe's "Eventide" series (noun, archaic literary: the end of the day; evening).
With Eventides, Poppe takes us to the edge, the boundary between the sea and sky, the land and water, and the day and evening. These abstract landscapes hum and slide between clarity and abstraction, leaving us on the brink of fluid twilight.
Depicting the ocean and other bodies of water such as large salt lakes, these linear compositions are long, sometimes sliding, views into the distance. Some draw you in, with distant chinks of reflected light on smooth water where others are flattened as if by a haze of weather, becoming even closer to the Modernist colour field paintings that are a longstanding inspiration to the artist. The meditative sublime recognised within Mark Rothko’s work is a touch point for Poppe, prompting commitment to both the experiencing of the view and the sharing of the resulting photographs.
Taken with long exposures and deliberate movement these photographs confer the visceral experience of standing before that changing, liminal environment to a viewer in the gallery. The cleansing, calming and turbulent effect of a sea view is always going to need more than an accurate photographic depiction and these images seek out that moment of being within the view at a potent time of transition.
"Poppe’s work has an immense feeling of spirituality. In her own words, she creates art that 'gives people's minds the space to rest'. Shot through long exposures at dusk, the weather, light and water create an illusion of floating bands of colour, culminating in a single moment of perfection."
This large format artwork is a calming presence for any space.
Using a state-of-the-art printing technique, called thermal sublimation, the highest quality pigments are permanently bonded to coating of a ChromaLuxe aluminium panel. This results in an outstandingly clear and extraordinarily vivid archival quality print, without the need for glass.
