Paul Kirley


Paul Kirley lives and works in California. Paul grew up in a family of artists and designers. Art was an integral part of Paul’s life as a child. Kirley’s artistic influences include a connection to landscape, buildings and place through family exposure to architecture and landscape architecture. He discovered both photography and a love of 50’s abstract expressionist painting in his teens. He dreamed Kline brush strokes, Stieglitz compositions, and Rauschenberg combines.

Each artwork transports the viewer to a dynamic environment. The physicality of the flowing paint coveys human emotions that contrast the clarity and formality of the geometric elements. Unique brush strokes and washes serve to complete the dreamscapes, adding transitional dream fragments and a sense of motion.
