Kim Powell is a multidisciplinary artist with songwriting, drumming, acting, and visual art-making expertise. Powell spent 18 years in Mexico and Chile before returning to the U.S. in 2019. She earned a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and continued studies in painting at Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2005. She studied painting with American painter John Alexander in 2010.
As part of the Eros group show, 2017, curated by Andrew Fisher of Fisher-Wiseman, Powell examined sensuality and the abstraction of the human body. A solo exhibition soon followed at Imagine Gallery in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico 2018. That work explored questions about cultural identity and how countries have unique visual languages. In 2021 Powell began providing art from her Pop series based on abstracted water balloons to modern living innovator URBY in New Jersey and Dallas residences. She regularly participates in online exhibitions and exhibits at The Other Art Fairs, and is represented by Wolf Gallery in Austin, Texas.
Her current abstract work explores channels of awareness and how the viewer becomes her subject through conscious connection. As interconnected beings, she invites viewers to visit a realm beyond the physical but in a space-between for healing, awareness, and activation.
