San Francisco in Paintings by Kim Ford Kitz

Kim Ford Kitz is a San Francisco Bay Area artist specializing in abstract landscape and figurative oil paintings.

The content of my work is inspired by the desire to communicate my visual experiences passionately with others. I spend time exploring dimensions of landscape and developing a love for places and things that we occasionally take for granted. Artists share perceptions with growing audiences ready for anything-my job is to stimulate, not dictate. 

Some of my references are from black and white satellite photos that I have cropped and stretched into a new composition. Other selections are photographed by me, found or from imagination. The rich textures are developed to amplify the layers of color beneath to represent growth and erosion.  

My current work ranges from multicolored grids in aerial landscapes to the composition of city buildings and the directional pull of a rustic road. It is a challenge for me to find a balance from the irregular patterns I find in agriculture and urban sprawl.
