Kim Chasen

Kim Chasen began her professional art career in 1996. She co-owned Dezart One Gallery in Palm Springs from 2001-2011 and co-founded the Backstreet Art District.

In all of her work, Kim seems to have an innate ability to coax a feeling of strength and vitality out of a few well chosen colors worked on a textured canvas. Lying just beneath the surface, the paintings project a double life without compromising their integrity as pure abstraction. The interior areas imply both deep space and a flat surface, making it appear as if the viewer is looking both at and through Chasen’s compositions.

Kim’s work has been chosen for the Artist’s Council Exhibition (ACE) show at the Palm Springs Art Museum in 2013, as well as 2014. She currently exhibits her work at Joshua Tree Art Gallery (JTAG) and STUDIO D in Palm Springs.
