Kim Hill-Goddette
Professional Artist

Kim Hill-Goddette is a visual artist specializing in acrylic abstract paintings. Goddette was born in Wood County, Ohio and grew up in Adrian, Michigan. Goddette's works are most closely associated with Expressionism and Modern art, yet originally influenced by nature and the farm country of her youth. Goddette studied art in high school, through various independent studies and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Siena Heights University.

Goddette has exhibited and sold her works at various venues such as the Adrian Center for Creative Development, Croswell Opera House Gallery, Affirmations Pittmann-Puckett Gallery and Just-4-Us Gallery. Typically referred to by collectors as "joyful colors", the attention to color interactions in her work creates interesting compositions which engage the viewer to look, examine, and "enjoy".

Goddette was named "Central Florida Artist of the Week" the third week of September 2018, by Ed Herbst, President of the Associates of the Orlando Museum of Art.

"I use a seemingly chaotic whirling effect in my work", said Goddette. "I enjoy moving the viewers eye around my paintings with this technique. I welcome the energy and emotions my work seems to stir in the viewer from calm to focused energy."

"Vortex of energy" and an "apex form", are words collectors seem to use to describe her engaging representation of landscapes, seascapes, and spacescapes. Her work reflects a unique appreciation for the combinations of nature and space, using sensitivity to color, movement, and texture to create dynamic compositions.

Additionally, she has pioneered her own method of "fluid pour" technique which results in interesting colors, cell forms, and striations.

Typically viewers come to various interpretations of her work and as such she, in many instances prefers to leave the works untitled.

Goddette, has studied the work of Wassily Kandinsky, for the lyrical and linear qualities, and Gerhard Richert for the color combinations, patterns, and texture.

Today, Goddette is expanding her gallery representation across America.

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas

This is an abstract expressionist/contemporary style acrylic painting with a landscape image. This is painting one in the Red Line series. I used a 1.5 inch gallery wrapped canvas on wood frame and began with a layer of gesso. I used a brayer tool (first time), palette knife, and my hands to apply the acrylic paint. I typically blend the colors on the canvas and there is a process of adding and removing/layering paint to achieve the colors and forms desired. This enabled me to uncover the golden yellow color on the bottom third of the canvas. I also blended in some gloss gel to give the red line a bit of shininess. I was able to achieve some nice texturing using the brayer tool and palette knife. I painted the outer edges black, so it is ready to hang as it is. After finishing the painting, I applied a polycrylic protective finish, which gave the colors a bit of a pop as well. I hope this painting will prove visually interesting and that it imbues a sense of peace.

This is an original work.
