About Kim
Artist Portrait: Curtis Bryant

_MG_3148.jpg

Kim Dacres is a Bronx-based artist and sculptor of Jamaican descent who uses found tires and rubber to create sculptures celebrating influential forces in her life such as family, community, musicians, athletes, and ideas. Dacres is attracted to discarded rubber because of the color, smell, and the material’s symbolism imbued with a wealth of experience paired with wear, tear, and sudden disregard. Through the process of layering the materials, the rubber's journeying experience transforms into muscle, bone, skin, hair, and personal style. Her work considers the texture of experiences unique to Black People and women and the fragments of their experiences that shape a world view. All of Kim's works are hand-made using recycled tires and rubber.
