Kimberly Walker IEA | Watercolour | 30 x 33 inches

“I have found the most amazing colours and shapes, not only in the perfect life cycle of plants and flowers, but in their breakdown , or in this case ‘Meltdown ‘, at the end of that cycle.

I love drawing attention to this natural process and using it to symbolise other life processes e.g. The breakdown of the Planet over time, the beauty of imperfection as well as perfection, comparing the simplicity and pure beauty of youth (the perfect young flower) with the complexity and quiet beauty of old age and experience ( the fading flower).

It gives me a chance to enjoy painting a more detailed accurate botanical flower and then a free flowing much more romantic flower, all in one painting. I like to find a link between more detailed Science and the unpredictable freedom of Art.

‘Meltdown ‘ and other paintings in this series of large watercolours are an attempt to demonstrate all this! Everything l paint is related to my fascination with the Natural World.

I am a self taught artist who had loved painting from childhood!” Kimberly Walker
