Kimberly English is an interdisciplinary artist, primarily focusing on fibers and textiles. She received her BFA in Fibers as a Distinguished Scholar from Savannah College of Art and Design, and is currently working and teaching as an MFA Candidate at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, supported by a Digital Humanities Fellowship. Her artworks demonstrate how life extends beyond subjective limits and often tells a story about the effects of global cultural interaction.
Fascinated by notions surrounding domestic accumulation and the globalization of the everyday, Kimberly challenges desensitization through the ontological threads that invigorate our existence. These threads tell stories, both personal and socially expansive. Her practice is rooted in the labor of "women's work", often in repetitive endurings of construction, such as weaving or sewing, but also in acts of deconstruction, like unraveling, unknitting, and seam ripping.
