Kim Bach is an artist and painter who resides in Hudson, New York. Her time is consumed by running her teashop, Verdigris Tea & Chocolate while she ponders her next painting project. She is the niece of famed Utah artist Lee Deffebach. A recipient of a residency at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, NY, Kim studied at the California College of Arts & Crafts and received an MA from Long Island University in Brooklyn, NY. Her early works were shown at Henri Gallery in Washington DC and Christensen Heller Gallery in Oakland, California. Current works have been represented by McDaris Fine Art in Hudson, NY.
“Some of the most striking examples of New York School nonobjective abstraction were those in which artists such as deKooning and Robert Motherwell tore up painting and made collages with them. Kim Bach…uses this method to considerable effect. In this age of simplistic figuratism, it’s good to see nonobjective abstraction of the caliber of Bach’s collaged paintings.”
