Kimbler's show consists primarily of black and white charcoal drawings in the still-life tradition with contemporary references, but inspired by 17th-century European works.

Kimbler's subjects incorporate everyday objects, ranging from candy and other food items, to clothing, electronics and personal possessions.

His work presents a strong focus on interior spaces and isolation. Regardless of the objects represented, light remains the universal and unifying element of all the pieces, creating in each a quiet drama and emphasis on contemplation.
