About Kimber Smith

Abstract Expressionist Kimber Smith painted subtle compositions of washy colors and shapes. Although perhaps better known for his friendships with Helen Frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell, Smith forged a distinct, intensely personal style, employing an original lexicon of forms and marks—circles and arcs, zigzags and angles. Although aligned with the aesthetic and techniques of Color Field painting and Abstract Expressionism, Smith’s preoccupation with symbols and structure was distinctive. “Structure interests me…it holds things together,” he said. “I am often called a colorist, which is maybe true, but I couldn’t care less about color.”
