Kim William Fink is a Professor in the Department of Art & Design at the University of North Dakota, where he teaches printmaking.
Fink's art often explores the ways in which cultural memory is produced. His work calls attention to the images and meanings that create individual and collective identities. Fink also explores the influence of popular culture and postmodern perspectives on identity.
A note from the artist: "'Take that!" - Printed in Corciano, Italy in November, 2001, one month after the attacks on the twin towers in NYC. I was teaching at American University, located in Corciano, and the university's located in Washington D.C. Most students were either from D.C. or New York and many knew people killed in the attack. The mood at the college was sombre and depressed. This is a work reflecting on my thoughts at the time, mostly in response to President Bush's (in my opinion) rash decision to attack Afghanistan."
