New Art Exhibit: Kimberly Iles
Our newest art exhibit on display at Vastu is from artist Kimberly Iles. Kimberly creates abstract/contemporary works through the use of mixed media to produce a range of effects on canvas and panel.
In this collection, Kimberly explores a not-so-artistic topic: science. Specifically, alternate universes and realities.
“Whereas science deals in the search for fundamental truth, art deals in imagination. Albert Einstein captured these sentiments in his essay on “The World As I See It” saying The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. For me, one of the most fascinating of scientific mysteries is the concept of parallel universes; the idea that there are an infinite collection of existences sharing every common likeness, memory, and perception of reality as you.”
