Collectors and art critics alike have observed that Kim McDonald's post-Impressionistic works manage to combine the lyrical and the modern in a fresh expression that is both evocative and abstract. With every viewing, the painting reveals a different dimension. On first glance, the movement and lushness of the tropics are overwhelming. Then, the juxtaposition of light and shadow, humidity and atmosphere, emerge. Stars dance, clouds glow . You can feel the moisture in the night sky, see the air flowing through it. You find yourself in a world that is fresh and strange, yet oddly familiar. You have entered Kim's Maui. Cezanne had his L'Estaque, Kim has her island. An island you can share.
