ARTIST STATEMENT

As a self-taught artist and creative storyteller, Eliaichi Kimaro is constantly reinventing herself, learning whatever medium it takes to tell the story that is emerging. Over the past 40 years, she has used writing, music, photography, film, storytelling, and now mixed media art to explore her personal/family narrative.

The paintings in this show are created using hot and/or cold wax. Over the past year, Eliaichi has been experimenting with oil and cold wax, and looking for ways to integrate this new medium into her encaustic work.

Across every medium, Eliaichi finds beauty in the rusty, weathered and worn. She loves the stories that scars hold ~ and feels compelled to take those stories of survival, and turn them into something beautiful to behold.

Original Paintings on paper now available

Just dropped these lovelies off at Columbia City Gallery.😁

These original oil and cold wax paintings are on 9″×12″ Arches Oil Paper (matted they are 11″×14″) and are available for $150.

Feels good to be making good on my New Year’s resolution to have works available with a range of price points.

If you’re in the neighborhood, please stop in and have a look!! These paintings are nestled in the bins upstairs and downstairs.

Enjoy!
