Kimberly Poppe is a photographer who explores the art of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary. Poppe is influenced by a range of artistic genres, from impressionism to the Contemplative Photography movement. Poppe hopes her images "give people's minds the space to rest".
The artist's work can be found in private collections around the world. She is currently working on commissions for Brittany Ferries' three new boats, featuring the areas of Galicia, Salamanca & Santoña in Spain.
Many of the photographs featured on Rise Art are part of her "Eventide" series. The images are of places where there are tides (ocean, salt lakes) as they meet that time of day known as dusk, twilight or eventide. Created with a slow shutter and deliberate camera movement, the images combine the different elements—earth, water, air and fire. They are also inspired by Poppe's long standing obsession with Mark Rothko’s paintings and the meditative, sublime experience associated with his work.
