“Abstract Landscape #15” combines elements of transparency with a sense of three-dimensional space. Raw indigo brushstrokes meet controlled edges of geometric forms, bold implied shadows and a splash of yellow. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges. It comes ready to hang.
Born in Massachusetts into a family of architects, designers and artists, Paul Kirley began drawing and painting by age two. From the beginning, he was influenced by his family’s connection to landscapes, buildings and a sense of place. In the fall of 1987 he moved to California to attend the Art Center College of Design. Inspired by architecture and a geometric translation of the natural landscape, he began to develop a signature style of work.
