About the artist
Kim Maple uses strong and bold colours in her paintings to express a contemporary appreciation for the unique Western Australian landscape. Her powerful works were initially inspired from memories but have now developed into a broader statement to capture the passionate nature of our environment in all its forms. Kim states, “Trees give a sense of place, a timelessness of the land.”
Working in oils, she looks to simplify elements and push boundaries. Abstract in composition and structure, while balancing the shapes and colour within the space, Kim builds rhythmic movements across her canvases using layers of colour and glazes.
