About Kim V. Goldsmith

Rural and regional locations are rich environments in which to create engaging and universal artworks...

I’m an eco-artist working in the heart of regional Australia - it's beautiful, extreme, challenging and fragile. Using research, community engagement, writing and a range of digital media, the works I produce filter back into the communities where they're created, as well as being presented in exhibitions and publications in Australia and internationally. I also utilise online channels such as geolocated sound walks, SoundCloud and various web-based platforms, allowing access to what I do from just about anywhere. I'm constantly exploring a wide range of territories looking for connections, rhythms, movement, patterns and ‘hidden’ layers as they ebb and flow on the seasons.

A print and radio journalist by training, my creative work aims to tease out new perspectives and narratives. Rural and regional locations are rich environments to create engaging and universal artworks that often mirror the human condition, informed by the landscapes and communities in which they are created; environments that don’t always conform to our expectations.

Research driven, conceptually-interesting, issues-based projects underpin much of my creativity as an artist and collaborator, within Australia and overseas. Over the past five years my work has made its way into solo shows, group exhibitions and festivals, including in Iceland and the UK.

ecoPULSE explores the futures of rural, regional and remote territories through enquiry, creativity and connections.

In 2020, I established ecoPULSE as an online umbrella platform to document and house the information that comes to light through my research and to present some of the creative output. It has a clear directive to explore the futures of rural, regional and remote territories through enquiry, creativity and connections. The projects that fall under the ecoPULSE umbrella are a collection of investigative, ecology-centred, multimedia projects that look into the relationships with, responses to and narratives about our place in the natural world and within regional communities, wherever they may be.

There are a few projects on the go already and more in the pipeline. I'm also looking to collaborate with more artists across Australia and internationally.

Your support provides time and space to be creative.

Your support provides the time and space to be creative and find more innovative and interesting ways to explore hidden elements within the landscapes and territories in which I work, and to share the stories of the people who inhabit these places. That time might be simply time in the field or time at a residency - at home or abroad, creating the mental space to be creative, which is the most valuable space there is.

I love my supporters. You're my audience and part of the reason I do what I do. My subscribers will always be treated as VIPs, with monthly updates on projects, personal invitations to exhibitions and events, first offers on workshops, special field trips or publications...and sometimes there'll be an opportunity to preview a work before its public reveal.

I look forward to sharing more with you as an important member of my ecoPULSE team.
