Paul Kirley creates visual experiences that connect people to art and spatial relationships. His large abstract artworks on canvas combine the human experience, place and personal memory, yielding a narrative assemblage. Blending modern architecture and interior design with contemporary geometric abstraction, Kirley expresses connections between the representational landscapes and ephemeral dreamscape experiences. Links between the two worlds are created as a series of traditionally painted layers and gestures. The creative process of each piece presents opportunities to live fully immersed in the stories and places of our dreams.

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. Kirley continues to explore spatial relationships that capture the essence of a place, how we move through a space in the world and within a piece of art, while exhibiting his artworks throughout the United States.

Paul Kirley was born in Massachusetts and moved to California to study at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Art was an integral part of Kirley’s life as a child, as he grew up in a family of artists and designers. The artist discovered both photography and a love of 50’s Abstract Expressionist painting in his teens.
Kirley’s process begins as a series of digital photographs. Iconic images and stories are identified and catalogued, then selections are composed and combined with found objects yielding a narrative assemblage. The final step in the process includes expressing connections between the representational landscapes and ephemeral dreamscape experiences. Links between the two worlds are created as a series of traditionally painted layers and gestures. The creative process of each piece presents opportunities to live fully immersed in the stories and places of our dreams.
Paul Kirley is an exhibiting member of the Arts Guild of Sonoma and regularly contributes to the Venice Artwalk.
