Kimberly Patino: Divine Intervention
One River Larchmont is excited to showcase the photography of Kimberly Patino in the first in our "Community Conversation" exhibition series, which will showcase local emerging artists from the Westchester area. Kimberly's photography focuses on concepts of identity, body image and her role as a woman. She creates worlds which are reminiscent of brooding, Victorian landscapes where her female figures are in various situations juxtaposed with nature.
As a millennial surrounded by social media and celebrity news, I was having a difficult time accepting my body and kept thinking negatively about my appearance. In the hopes of trying to get out of this depressive state, I began to think of ways on how I can view myself in a positive light through the use of photography. I started creating images that expressed my emotions and/or thoughts that I was having until it dawned on me that I’m able to create a world of my own. These images showcase the different personalities and visions that are within me and where I can escape to feel empowered and safe.
Kimberly Patino (b. 1989) is an American photographer and visual artist. She received her BA from Hunter College and studied with Gloria Albarez, a Colombian painter.
She began her career as a photo assistant for portrait photography company, Glamour Shots. Working in a fast-paced studio, Kimberly began to hone her skills in photography and uncovered her true passion: visual storytelling. With a focus on portraiture and lifestyle imagery, her work focuses on women, identity, and the relationship between immigration and Americanism.
Kimberly's work has exhibited in solo and group shows to include: The Harrison Public Library, The Bowery House, the 440 Gallery and the Art Crasher Traveling Gallery. Her work has been published in various magazines and online articles such as Fashion Grunge, Adobe Student and ARTNEWS.
