Kimberly Greene’s bricks are not the mortared blocks of masonry construction. Yet, the notion of building pervades her work. Greene’s dual interest in the sciences and the arts is evident in works she describes as “design and engineering oriented.” Her jewel-toned, porcelain bricks are based on the equilateral pyramid; however, when displayed as horizontal, interlocking forms rather than stacked units, they reference floral patterning and undulating landscapes. Greene ultimately undermines the functionality of her brickwork through the playful use of curvaceous shapes, positive and negative space, and artful arrangements. She fuses ideas rooted in utility and the built environment with elements of the natural world and the more ornamental concerns of pattern and décor.
