    Art Brokerage: Ian Kimmerly American Artist: Ian Kimmerly is an artist who received an MFA from the University of Arizona and studied at the Academy of Fine Art and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia. He has been an Artist in Residence at the Vermont Studio Center and the Santa Fe Art Institute and received a grant from the Sustainable Arts Foundation. He is an Adjunct Instructor of Painting and Drawing at City College of San Francisco. Kimmerly boldly embraces the disparate by integrating various styles and techniques into each painting. Softly blurred photorealistic figures slip between abstract gestures while gleaming, thickly impastoed streaks of paint are counterbalanced by bright, geometric pops of color. Though the final paintings depend on a number of different factors, his process typically involves the same set of steps: after priming the canvas with an acrylic glaze and placing the figures, Kimmerly begins adding generous layers of paint that he manipulates and scrapes away while still wet. Figures subsequently get moved around and incorporated into the surrounding ground while he builds up his painting's surfaces. Within the tensions generated between nonobjective and illusory space, notes of Abstract Expressionism, Bay Area Expressionists such as Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff, Gerhard Richter, and John Singer Sargent are evident.
