"Abstract Landscape #30" combines geometric forms and color in a composition with both tension, and a feeling of motion. Transparent shards are captured in a snapshot, as they pass over solid volumes. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished white edges.
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.
