With a diverse portfolio expanding over 40 years, Kirk uses many tools such as: preparatory drawings, projections, transfer paper, found images, photographs and the computer. Being raised in Iowa he saw renewed beauty in the rural areas. His recent series of paintings give a vision of the Midwest landscape that was familiar and refreshing. Using the atmosphere and light found within our state — he captures familiar snapshots of time within his stylized paintings, transporting the viewer to the heat of a summer evening at dusk, or to the seat of a moving car passing by a field.
