Kim Henigman Bruce believes that the message of art is more important than the medium from which it is created. However, it is through the materiality of her objects that her message is conveyed. She is a sculptor who uses materials from distinctly different sources. By juxtaposing these materials with a beeswax or encaustic foundation she is free to manipulate, at will, until the piece finds its voice. 

Kim is drawn to subjective statements and open-ended interpretation which allows others to bring their own experiences to Kim’s artwork.

"My work is full of visual puns, double entendre, symbolism and satire. It references the dichotomy of my early life expectations to conform to a traditional woman’s role, when in fact, reality for me, was the need to be self-sufficient and support myself as an entrepreneur and business owner. These contradictions allow me to expose my private self through veiled metaphor creating objects significant beyond function. The underlying message – the essence of my work – speaks to the roles and rights of girls and women."
