Art from Kim Buck

Gosh she's good. I remember seeing Kim Buck's work for the first time and having to do the whole, wrinkle-nose and squinty eyes two centimetres from the page before I could believe she'd drawn these beautiful, weightless works. Kim Buck will set you flat on your arse then lift you up to dizzying heights with her wistfull conversation with human movement in her exhibition this month at Peter Walker Fine Art.

In Kim's words...

Conatus is a Latin word describing the innate vital force of a being to continue to endeavour. Descartes believed conatus was “an active power or tendency of bodies to move” while Thomas Hobbes defined it as the “will to survive”. Two and a half millennia on from its initial inception by the Stoics, conatus is a concept that is still remarkably relevant today.
