|Kimberly Zsebe is a native Milwaukeean. She moved to Los Angeles in 2006 to pursue her painting and love of sunshine, after attaining a BFA in painting and drawing, with a minor in art history from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. She also holds a BA in philosophy from the same school. Zsebe has also pursued her love of photography and has been working therein for some time, both commercially and artistically. However, painting is still the art form closest to her heart, and remains the focus of her creativity.
Her work was most recently featured in February 2012 at the Hive Gallery in Los Angeles. Zsebe’s work has also been shown at Barnsdale Park, La luz de Jesus, and the Loft at Liz’s. All of which have displayed her most recent work in religious icons. Zsebe’s Icon work combines her love of philosophical questioning and her dedication to traditional methods of painting. Fun and provocative, familiar yet fresh, these paintings lead the viewer into a dialogue that compares the sanctity of religion to our modern day consumerism.
