Floating Fantasy Art

The mythological world of children’s fairytales is at once dangerous and comforting, reminding us of our wide-eyed innocence and our fear of the unknown. Kim Feigenbaum explores this enchanted dichotomy with her elegant heroines and oddly approachable horrors.

Lyrical, elegant figures confront and cavort with the spirit world, windswept hair and flowing cloaks blurring the lines between worlds seen and unseen. Ms. Feigenbaum’s watercolors and inks reveal an ethereal world with a modern flair, with some of the dreamy formality of Art Deco, and perhaps even hints of Ukiyo-e’s floating world. Whatever the source of her inspiration, the result is a unique, ultimately spiritual voyage of discovery.

For a more whimsical journey, be sure to visit the bevy of curious creatures, nightmare hybrids, and improbable intermixes — including a frogbirdbunny and a corgi eva — that populate Kim’s blog.
