—steel & LEDs, Courtesy of the Artist —Kimpton is best known for her monumental word sculptures, which she has been bringing to Burning Man since 2009. Kimpton often covers these works with laser-cut birds, a motif she uses to represent freedom from the weight of our words and thoughts. In addition to conveying this universal message, the sculptures have an intimate dimension for Kimpton, who confronts personal issues in her work ranging from her severe dyslexia to the death of her father, the hotelier Bill Kimpton, in 2002. The artist's works have earned her six Burning Man Honorarium Grants, solo exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and commissions and permanent installations in cities around the world.
