Kim DiDonato is a contemporary artist based in Washington, DC. While in graduate school in Italy, she developed a passion for photography and was influenced by the urban imagery of photographers such as Nino Migliori and the landscape photography of Ansel Adams.
Later she studied painting and sculpture in London, Venice, New York and Washington DC which she calls home. Her love of monochromatic palettes drew her to study abstract expressionists like Robert Motherwell. Her abstract works often play with geometric compositions and textural patterns tracing back to landscape photography. Kim credits her love of travel as the source of her continuous drive to experiment with new mediums and incorporate influences from a wide range of sources. Her work has been exhibited in numerous regional and national juried shows.
Reflecting the strange social isolation of the past two years, Together | Alone is a new body of work of mixed media paintings and sculptures depicting fragile and distorted figures. These works will be exhibited in a solo show at Salt Gallery in Key West in December 2021.
