> past 2016 Kim Fink: Changing Nature
Mission & History
February 6 - March 4, 2016
Kim Fink has taught at the University of North Dakota since 1999. He is now in his final semester, retiring in May 2016. As a beloved Professor of Art and Printmaking, he has developed a highly-regarded printmaking program at the University, founded the Sundog Multiples, a platform for his advanced students to collaborate with established artists, and cut a wide and joyful swath through North Dakota’s art community.
Born and raised in the American West, Fink is fascinated with its truly postmodern expressions of popular culture. Fink likes to quote the poet Richard Hugo’s observations of the West’s ancient newness: “. . . Out West . . . the only thing new is neon. . . .” Kim Fink assembles picture games based in images and symbols that are painted mysteries and intricately layered prints.
