Kim Banister

Vessels of Life

2007 Exhibit Dates
Nov 09 To Dec 01

Delicate strokes of charcoal are captivatingly balanced by dripping lines of linseed oil in large-scale drawings by Kim Banister. Her knowledge and understanding of Eastern concepts is fundamental to the portrayal of her subjects. White space bestows the drawings with more life and becomes an essential part of the work. The drawings, full of both beauty and simplicity, encourage a contemplative emotional state. Banister holds a Master of Fine Arts in Drawing from the University of Cincinnati, and a Bachelor of Arts from Dickinson College.
