The depth and persistence of Kim Squaglia's oil and resin on panel paintings reveal themselves through a visceral dialogue between the artist and viewer. Resin allows Squaglia the ability to explore and to communicate through layers of hidden and exposed brilliant color. With affective and direct color palettes, Ms. Squaglia is able to convey both the brooding moodiness and the delicate quietude of color field painting and the naturally active forms created by biological systems and patterns.

Kim Squaglia is interested in perceptual aspects of color in which layering and gradual hue changes create the illusion of space and movement. She builds very detailed and refined images that contrast with areas of void space masterfully layered under coats of resin. Biological forms and references to the vastness of space are transformed into delicate webs interwoven with thin tendrils.
