SKIN

STUDENT SHOW

One River Gallery / Lake Oswego

About

Kim Anderson's series Skin is a series of large-scale drawings created with ink on Japanese Washi. These highly detailed hand portraits are the hands of people close to the artist.

According to Kim: "Our hands, along with our feet, are in constant contact with the rest of the world, more worn and creased than anywhere else on the body.  They are tough yet sensitive, dexterous and yet somehow vulnerable, and highly demonstrative of complex emotions. Through constant wear they bear the inscriptions of our life experience, our passions and fears and memories layered over one another like a palimpsest."

Anderson has closely examined the lines, creases, patterns, and scars that are unique to each individual. She has shown the stretching, shrivelling, creasing, and cracking that appear as we move through the stages of our lives. Thus, serving as a topographical map of everything that has ever happened. Through her drawings, we are asked to search this map, this landscape, discovering the precious memories held in our fingertips, and the momentarily forgotten pain of loss in the creases of the knuckles.
