Interview with KIMBERLY WITHAM:

Your childhood ambition:

I don’t recall any specific ambition as a young child. When I applied to college I looked into programs in Art History and/or Meteorology. Art History won but I still love the natural sciences.

Something you treasure:

I love my family and friends, but I also crave solitude.

Your worst habit:

Aggressive nail biting.

The aspect of your work that’s most important to you:

I try to create images which are seductively beautiful while at the same time disturbing or thought-provoking. As a photographer, I think gorgeous light is a must.

Your first job:

Age 14, bussing tables in a seaside tourist trap.

Someone whose work you highly recommend:

This is a difficult question to answer. I love the work of the Dutch masters—Vermeer, Jan Weenix, Melchior de Hondecoeter, Rembrandt, etc. In terms of contemporary artists, I really love Thorsten Brinkmann and Hellen Van Meene along with too many others to list.
