Fall Arts Preview 2016:
'Ian Kimmerly: As We Wander, We Are Closer'
by Jonathan Curiel, Aug. 31 2016
Once every several years, painter Ian Kimmerly exhibits his work at Dolby Chadwick Gallery, and this is that year — a chance to see the work of an artist who creates canvases that distill distinct elements of abstraction and figuration. This time, the digital world and media — social and otherwise — are a subtext of his work. Kimmerly’s work is purposefully (and beautifully) fragmented. As he told SF Weekly the last time he exhibited at Dolby Chadwick, “Big picture, I’m always very interested in the urban experience versus the natural world, and the conflicts there.”
