About Kim Miles

After working in film for many years I returned to still photography / art photography eventually discovering that with simple photo editing software I could deconstruct/manipulate an image and make it completely different.
 
I never know the end result and this makes it very experimental/creative.It’s exciting work as there is always the possibility of arriving at something unknown/different/powerful/evocative.
 
I’m interested in abstraction/distortion/chaos, similar to the art of Francis Bacon.
Also the boldness/colour/simplicity/audacity of Andy Warhol and Pop Art.
 
Also influenced by the punk ethos of imperfection/energy/breaking rules.
I prefer a rough result with visible pixels/digital markings rather than a technically pristine image.
It is, and has the appearance of painting electronically.
 
Much of the current work has reflected the Covid 19 times and has had a strong and gratifying response from viewers.
 
I am intrigued by the future relationship between art and computers.

“Love it, dreamy and terrifying at the same time.” “Disturbing, thought provoking, brilliant. It seems dismal? Depressing? I don’t like looking at it. Well done.” “This picture and title really speak to how I’m feeling right now.” “Very powerful…..this is quite amazing.” “This is something of a kind!” “Oh, I love it…..I feel it.” “Dreamy and terrifying at the same time.” “Something really intriguing, almost sinister.”
