About the Artist

Artist Bio

Bio:
Kim Aerts is an artist who was born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His parents, who
immigrated from Europe, instilled in him a love of the old world and a fascination for ancient
places and things.
From these interests, he started drawing and painting at a young age. As a teen, he had the
opportunity to study with renowned Smithsonian artist Eleanor Kish, who taught him the fundamentals of working in oil painting and landscapes. He attended Mount Allison University and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in the late 80s. He then traveled and lived in both Europe and the Northwest Territories before returning to Nova Scotia to settle down. He married and with his partner founded a graphic design firm which he helped run since the mid-1990s. Throughout this time, Kim continued his art and worked in the mediums of sculpture
and photography before returning to painting in oils.

Artist’s Statement:
“I paint landscapes but beneath the surface I am exploring the relationship of the viewer to their natural environment. I use a varied gestural technique combined with a focus on simple brush strokes in an attempt to capture the essence and the latent energy of the landscape I am painting. I also paint on smaller canvases that invite the viewer for a closer look and interaction with the complexities that embody the soul of that landscape."
