About Kim Miles
I am a transgender/mild AIS intersex artist/actor/filmmaker who dislikes labels! 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. Finding truth through distortion.
Also the boldness/colour/simplicity/audacity of Andy Warhol and Pop
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.
I recently returned to acting/performing and with changes to my body have become interested in my image via self portraits etc.
