Kim Mobey’s painting, printmaking, installations and sculpture seek beauty and human connection while searching out stories of global history, leadership and contemporary cultural and political cross-pollination. She investigates aesthetics, age, gender, race and class as ideologies both in her work and in the broader sphere.
Her work utilises traditional media and materials as well as experimental applications of new materials, techniques and mixed media including collage, calcite printing, sculpture, performance, installation and sustainable architecture. She develops all her works with an emphasis on permanence, history and creating meaning – balancing contemporary relevance with being of value to the current and future generations.
Art as a way of life
A dedicated autodidact and educator, she continually studies and shares both new and traditional technical skills, art history, languages, sculpture, installation, performance, painting and printmaking through charitable events, digital media and providing art internships and residencies at her Cape Town studio.
